In this new post to his blog Juozas Kaziukenas talks about why he "embraces PHP on Windows" over the more common LAMP sort of stack that PHP development has been known for.I have been getting this question a lot lately - why I care about PHP on Windows (and give talks about it) and don't just use Linux. Interestingly though, I use Linux for most of the clients I work for, but this is completely irrelevant. Let me get this straight - it's not about migrating working applications from X (usually Linux)...
