  1. I saw your slides. I think creating desktop applications with PHP is not a big deal. I mean, PHP is not aimed for desktop applications and I believe that expecting such a thing can harm PHP’s future.
    Whatever, thank you for slides and sharing them.
    Also, let’s support CSS3. Read CSS3 Multi-Column Layout Module

  2. PHP wasn’t originally created to be embedded or used in command line scripts either, but it can be now. HTML and the internet itself are good examples of technologies that have evolved well beyond their original intended use cases. PHP desktop development can also be accomplished with the PHP-GTK extension ( I don’t think desktop development with PHP stands to harm its future; the capability makes it a more versatile language. So, I suppose we’ll have to agree to disagree on that one.
