    Wait wait, you mean PHP isn't a completely perfect language? Are you trying to tell me that PHP, which is a script language, isn't as powerful as C++/Java? Are you implying that PHP may do things differently then some other flash in the pan language like ruby?

    Excuse me while I go kick the shit out of this dead horse...

    That's an extremely small list of issues that can be hashed out over time.

    Yeah, but some things really suck.

    Like:
    Type-coercing comparison operators will convert numeric strings to numbers

    If you know the language, that's not really a problem. Most of the time you should be using ===, unless you want the type coercion features.

    Since 5.0 was released PHP has made huge steps in the right direction with every release.

    I like the new and easy implementation of bcrypt very much.

    Default no scalar type hinting?

    baahh it seems that scalar type hinting didn't made it

    Example:
    function myfunction(int $param, double $param2, string $param3)

    that sucks.

    Apparently this is a patch for this (too lazy to look for the url) but the "community" poopoo'd it.

    Yes, I would also like this feature.

    Really, how many PHP programmers really use the === operator?
    Who really uses that?
    Not even the official manual pages at php.net uses it in their examples.
