    Quick Question

    Ok, a simple question, and I would prefer a simple list. It's a little research for an article I'm writing.

    Why do you think PHP is better than ASP?

    I'm not really looking for a discussion, just a simple list like so:

    Faster
    Cooler
    Better name

    php

    faster, more features, more support, free (no hidden costs), and of course mysql integration.

    definetly the wise choice.

    - faster
    - syntactically close to C (which is a good thing )
    - Open-Source
    - great community
    - simple to use (subjective though)
    - support for almost everything from databases to XML to LDAP to WDDX... you name it
    - lots of built-in functions
    - asp? isn't that a kind of snake?

    that's all i can think of for now...

    PHP doesn't have a nightmarish object model to wade through for doing simple things like reading from a text file
    the PHP manual is a big positive

    amen to that

    some additions:
    - suitable for Rapid Application Development
    - a holy trinity when used on Linux and Apache (compared with the unholy trinity of WinNT, IIS and ASP... how much does that cost already? )
    - MSDN scares the asp out of me
