the net is full of exceptions to this "rule." one could equally argue
that solaris is better then linux for serious portal sites, but the fact
is that a portal site isn't going to make heavy demands on a server or

not updating software properly is an indictment of the admin staff, not
the software itself. i'm not a php fan, but i won't knock it because
patches weren't applied or it wasn't used properly.
