Thursday, September 29, 2005 - PHP Language Wins Supporters As Tool for Making Web Software - PHP Language Wins Supporters As Tool for Making Web Software: "Back when the Web was young, Marc Andreessen, then the wunderkind co-founder of Netscape Communications Inc., gave his backing to a new software programming language from Sun Microsystems Inc. That blessing launched the Java language as a counterweight to Microsoft Corp.'s technology dominance.
A decade later, Mr. Andreessen is endorsing another programming language called PHP as an alternative to Java for creating a new generation of Internet software.
Mr. Andreessen, now chairman of Opsware Inc., is backing up that opinion by joining the board of Zend Technologies Inc., a Cupertino, Calif., start-up that is seeking to build a business selling tools, updates and technical support for PHP, which is also available for free under an open-source license."
