I'm a hobbyist. not a programmer. but I've tried learing to program in python, java, ruby and now php. As a learning hobbyist I find php to be just fine. I think java is a good language too but it wasn't so much hard to learn as hard to get to work properly. I had Tomcat on my machine and well... it sucked royally. so I downgraded to php which I can say is a lot more fun, a lot less gray hair. Java's problem for people like me is it's bloat. so many bloody java this and that and this depends on this and that configuration that I just got fed up with it. If you like using it go ahead but us php lovers will go on using php. I wish I had started to learn about php a couple years ago when I was just getting into programming. I'd probably be light years ahead of where I am now. I don't care about the little things. I just want something I try to work. Tomcat just threw java out the window with all it's problems. so many tutorials that just couldn't be finished. "you should get this..." and I didn't. no explanation of why. At least PHP gives better feedback during errors.
