its nice to see that M$ is giving platform for php developers on with their bundles.
But I personally feel that this is another marketing stratagy. see these points
see any of the latest trends (or surveys) PHP is the most adoptable language by the huge companies, so that it become one of the main competitor for Microsoft products (such as ASP or ASP.net). So even if they lost the market grip in this segment, still they can survive with this kind of stratagies.
here are my questions.
When M$ giving PHP with their bundle, But it runs with only IIS and SQL Server, why it should be if they really want to serve the opensource community.
And also i dont completely agree about the salaries about the php pros...
this might be true (till end of 2006).
I personally know most of the PHP pros in india, they are getting more handsome figures.
