I want to know is PHP such a strong language for an e-Governmet Project?
Are there any major bugs in ASP?
Aren't there any bugs in PHP?
There have been many publicized security mishaps with various versions of Windows although MSoft keeps coming out with patches to fix them up. Of course Linux has had some security issues too but perhaps not as many of them.
Seems like governments usually go for what is cheap, i.e. opensource, i.e. Linux instead of Windows.
Try JSP, its much favoured in large enterprise applications, and is cross platform (like PHP), but is significantly quicker to run (as it is compiled rather than interpreted). It arguably has a greater range of functions availible as default than either PHP or ASP.
