Open Source Development Platform

As a software developer I am a strong advocate of open source software. They are used extensively both at my work and for my private projects. In retrospect, open source platform, often referred to as LAMP, has long past the stage being just an useful extension to proprietary software. It has become my dominant development platform. If I were to build a server application today, it would make very little sense for me to consider Microsoft servers. Why choose a framework that leave you with a single tools vendor. LAMP has proven to be technical viable, cost nothing to experiment and distribute, and more importantly I trust them because of its openness. Nowadays I need little justification to pick LAMP over Microsoft.

What a big leap from just a few years ago when it looks like Microsoft is going to take over the world.
