I have been getting this question a lot lately – why I care about PHP on Windows (and give talks about it) and don’t just use Linux. Interestingly though, I use Linux for most of the clients I work for, but this is completely irrelevant. Let me get this straight – it’s not about migrating working applications from X (usually Linux) servers to Windows. It’s just not about that. What it is about is to have an option to deploy on Windows. Why?
