Basically because I don't like PHP and I like (and more importantly -
know) Perl.

No, but 1) they're compiled languages and 2) they're not that
dissimilar (and I know them both :-)

Though yes, I am trying to imply that PHP software is less likely to

I don't know why, and it could quite easily just be me, but I've had a
lot of issues with getting PHP sites to work (eg. imp and phpGW)

At the end of the day, though, PHP vs Perl (vs Python), VI vs Emacs, C
vs C++, BSD vs Linux, etc., etc., etc. They're all the same - boooooring.

As a geek I have a million and one better things to do than argue why
one tool is better than another. I have my opinions, but they're mine
and not anyone elses.

I do, however, find it rather amusing to see how easily my fellow
