    :hsugh: :hsugh: :hsugh: :hsugh: :hsugh:

    I'm going to get flamed to shit on the next version of VBGOD.com
    It's going to be a PHP based site with some database connectivity (MySQL) hosted on a Linux server. Windows Servers are too expensive. :-/

    I still use IIS, SQL Server, and ASP/.NET for Enterprise/Corporate Applications though. But for stricly Web apps and especially in a remotely hosted environment, it's Linux, PHP, and MySQL all the way.

    why? Do your corporate applications require less security than you web apps? :confused:

    I am amazed how many corporations use m$ for servers. It just doesn't make any sence. I think the problem comes from microsoft donating 11ty billion dollars to colleges and especially business schools. I'm a CIS major taking a senior level security class and only 1-2 people in 40 have even touched a linux box.

    All these idiots learn vb and asp, then go on to make buggy, highly insecure web apps.

    Oh, I'm not moving over to PHP/MySQL :hsugh:

    I'm just going to use it for personal stuff.

    Is it VB that you don't like, or MS in general?

    Well I just hate vb because I had the worst vb prof in the world. I am also just more familiar with c, java, php, etc all with similar syntax.

    But IIS and windows in genneral is absolute worst possible thing to run in a corporate environment, especially when the web is involved.

    By the way, if I had to switch over to C# today, I would be able to do it with no problems. The only thing I don't like about C# are it's weak event handling.

    Do you really think the code/sytax of PHP is clean looking? :hs:

    Let's talk further when you get out in the real world ;)

    Windows in the corporate environment is fine, you just have to know what the fuck you're doing.

    What do you think OT is based on?

    Are you asking me that? :ugh:

    If you are... PHP / MySQL, and it holds up pretty well.

    I've played around with PHP for the past few years, but never used MySQL. This is about using non-ms technology for my MS theme site. :hs:

    That may be true, but no one knows what the fuck they are doing. The other problem, is that not only do you need to know what your doing, but everyone else involved needs to not be an idiot as well.

    60,000 viruses vs. 40 A kernal level firewall + proper permissions works magic.

    Honestly, I have no interest in working for a corp. For 36k a year I can work in chicago 60-80 hours a week. Or I can go live in a trailor in florida and be a secretary part time or do real estate. I'm seriously considering option 2.
