A new post to the php.evangelism mailing list has started up a great discussion on something that a lot of users seem to be in favor of - trying to get PHP accepted by Microsoft to be included in its Dynamic Language Runtime environment.
From the inital post:
I am wondering why there isn't any effort in the PHP community to get PHP into the DLR. If nothing, DLR is yet another platform, and for a php programmer it gives one more playground to showcase his skillset. Anyway, my question is whether there would be any community effort to get MS adopt PHP into CLR too. I am sure there is a genuine customer requirement, and enterprises have made quite a bit of investment in PHP and they would all love to be able to take it to the .NET platform.
