O'Reilly:
More PHP Adoption Statistics
December 08, 2006 @ 09:58:00

On the O'Reilly OnLamp.com blog, chromatic voices some concerns about the latest PHP statistics being released.

It's been three months since PHP Versions in the Wild. What does Nexen report about PHP version adoption statistics for November? [...] Nexen's PHP Adoption Stats for November 2006 show that PHP 4.4 has surpassed PHP 4.3. PHP 5 is in the double-digits, but it's still a fraction of PHP 4's popularity, despite its climb.

He also comments that, for those working towards a PHP6 release, it "must be frustrating" to see PHP5 adoption having taken such a long time to really get a foothold.

Developers and users alike were comfortable in their PHP4 world and didn't want to branch out to this newfangled thing that is PHP5. They hear stories of how it breaks things and only causes trouble and don't want to make the move. But finally, some brave souls put their feet in the water, saw that there were no piranhas in sight and dove right in. Thankfully, more and more have followed them hearing the success and ease with which PHP5 has made things in their applications.

So, what's your excuse? Why haven't you made the switch? And will you follow those leader's example and dive right into PHP6 when it comes around?
