C++ is in the same tier as PHP in terms of absolute garbage tier programming languages

Remind me how much of the web runs on PHP again?

They musta done something right.

Note: I do not use PHP, just pointing to the evolutionary evidence.

@kungtotte @sir
Windows had a lot of money behind it. PHP did not, as far as I know.

"jesus christ, lots of people using something *does not* imply that they're doing something right. Fuck's sake."

PHP can run on pretty much any cheap hosting service. So that's one of the things they did right. But the way they did it has advantages and disadvantages. Tradeoffs, as always.

Your (apparent) fave C has evolutionary advantages and tradeoffs, too.
