I have to confess I have done most of my web development on a MS platform. I'm beginning to see the merits of walking in the direction of open source. However it seems this means PHP, which I have only limited experience. There are an increasing number of new platforms such as Ruby on Rails and Python platforms. I do python and some ruby. So my question is: "has anyone got any experience of web developing with Python/RonR". Or is PHP still the best OS web development program.
