I have never been the biggest fan of php. My favourite language of choice is ocaml, with python and ruby not far behind. But I make my living writing web applications and not having the option to choose which servers those apps will run on usually means that php is the obvious choice. One thing I would like to point out, though, is that with version 5.3 and more recently 5.4, PHP now has a feature set that make it a worthy language to program in. If it had annotations (hint) then I would find it hard to find anything wrong with at all in practical application building. Add the fact that it has a decent market share of good web frameworks, including enterprise, micro and all between, excellent templating engines and suddenly the difficulty in finding fault with the venerable old workhorse increases rapidly.
