In what's sure to be a "flame bait" kind of post, Jani Hartikainen has posted five reasons PHP is better than Node.js - some simple one-liners and others a bit more complicated.
All hail Node.js! Boo PHP! Except there are various things where PHP is better than Node…
His five reasons are:
- Easier to find hosting
- It's easier to get started with PHP
- If your PHP code breaks, it doesn’t bring your whole server down
- PHP processes are short lived
- Bigger standard library
There's a few comments on the post already, one noting that some of the points could be turned around to make PHP fall more on the "bad" side.
