PHP vs ASP vs JSP vs ColdFusion vs PERL

CF - I was an expert at it at one time - before java intragration. Costs $$$ - so why use it when there are so many good free ones out. Didn't scale as well as the other languages (when i used it in the past)

PERL - like the pervious guy said - perl is great - but why, when php is faster to develope, learn, and use. (runs faster too)

PHP - its great for small and medium sites. for large - complex sites with complex business logic, jsp/asp.net win hands down. Better tools to reuse logic with those. Runs very fast. the php/MySQL combo is hard to beat. Very stable.

asp - ok, easy to learn, not as easy as CF. Runs faster then CF, slower then PHP. If you don't already know it - move on to .net

asp.net - good web language. The fastest out there and very easy to scale. But again - you have to pay for the OS. Very stable.

JSP - only JSP and asp.net are really fully object oriented and you can reuse your code in websites, serverside apps and client apps. JSP is a little harded to learn (java vs VB) JSP can be fast - but its harder to tune then asp.net. Out of the box - asp.net is faster.
