    PHP Work? (not an ad)

    Hey Im just wondering about this..

    I think PHP is an amazing language and very enjoyable, but how come
    when i search for jobs there aren't many for PHP? I know Im not skilled
    enough to do it but i love learning it. It seems like all the server side jobs
    are going to ASP.NET with VB.NET, is there any reason why?

    Sorry i dont know much about ASP.net but is there a benefit that is so much
    greater than PHP?

    More job postings for ASP and VB because less people know it,
    and therefore, a shortage of those proficient.

    Many companies also go with microsoft technologies because they can get official support with it. Many companies are afraid of integrating open source type products.
