Out of the closed source world I don't actually mind Coldfusion. There
are a lot of developers that treat their code as open source and there is
a strong developer community where their attitude is more akin to the
open source arena. I know that this is not true of a lot of closed
source groups but I would make an exception for Coldfusion. Having said
that I only use Coldfusion on Linux running Apache.
Guess I will start a closed/open source debate now or another
PHP/Perl/Coldfusion debate. Arrgghh.
