Thanks for your comments. To clarify my point, I am not trying to achieve 'complete world domination by LAMP technologies'. I also never even mentioned replacing proprietary solutions. What I do see is quite a number of commercial situations where LAMP technologies would provide a more stable, more secure, more affordable solution to the one in place or being considered. The one that comes to mind first is web servers with Windows and IIS vs. Linux and Apache.
My goal here was to come up with links to pages which summarize the benefits of LAMP technologies. I find myself in discussions with casual friends about technology sometimes, and would like something to refer people to if they are interested. If I have a client who has solicited my opinion on his next server, I want a page on my site to summarize the benefits of the technologies I have recommended. These folks are not the type who hang out on newsforge
, or they would not need explanations.
I can create such summaries myself (and probably will) but I just wanted to see what others had found or created.
