PHP Magazine:
IPM Poll Question What Are the Misconceptions Surrounding PHP?
August 01, 2006 @ 06:43:30

PHP Magazine has posted the results from one of their previous polls today - this time asking readers what they think the largest misconception surrounding PHP is.

The International PHP Magazine conducted a poll over the week, asking for your opinion on 'The misconceptions surrounding PHP'. The options provided were:
  • Java/ASP/Ruby/Python/Perl/C is better, and faster than PHP
  • PHP does not scale well
  • PHP has to write/read everything from a database
  • PHP does not support shared memory
  • PHP is not a compiled language
  • PHP can't run for days

The results from the poll showed unanimously that the impression that Java/ASP/Ruby/Python/Perl/C are better and faster than PHP topped the charts. Coming in close are two options - that PHP doesn't scale well and that PHP isn't a compiled language (surprising).

Check out their latest poll for the week asking what the most common security mistake is.
