"Fine with me. Whatever you say. In the end, It's probably good that so many people are still clinging to PHP. It gives people who don't just stick to the first thing they learned a well deserved edge."

My goodness, you are keen to judge others aren't you? I really shouldn't respond as you're obviously hell bent on being offensive, but...

The first thing I learned was C, thanks for asking. I've since learned and used commercially Java, Python, PHP, C#, VB, VB.Net, HB++, Javascript, and others. IMHO all of these languages have a place (well, not VB so much). I have a masters degree and 8 years experience as a software developer, and for all that I still believe PHP has a legitimate place in web application development. That's my opinion and also that of many web design firms, judging by the number of job advertisements wanting PHP skills.

The PHP devs have done and continue to do a wonderful job with the development of the language, and I for one thank them for their hard work.
