Well atleast i did, when i was developing a project with PHP. but looks like those days are gone..! I can clearly see a new era or collaborations, interoperability .. Do You ?

Yesterday at Zendcon Bill Hilf and Andi Gutmans announced a new technical collaboration aimed at improving the performance of PHP on Windows both for IIS 6 as well as in the future including IIS 7 on Longhorn.  The partnership has multiple components including Microsoft releasing a FastCGI add-on for IIS and Zend will establish a Windows testing lab to ensure high performance on an ongoing basis.
