|Could you please explain me in the terms that would make sense to me. :) that Why do most people prefer Ruby/Rails or Python over PHP.|
I like PHP because it's quite easy to learn, moreover, all of the major open source CMS (wordpress) are based on PHP, since most of the websites I deal with run on wordpress so it makes my job easier too. Moreover, I am believing, PHP is the most suitable language for 'web applications' because it does not rely on frameworks etc (rails) and can develop web applications at its own.
I want to know in layman terms, why Ruby/Rails or Python are better than PHP. Since I can not figure this out, perhaps due to the fact, I do not have major experience in programming languages. I appreciate if you could explain it to me.
