IBM backs PHP. At Java’s expense?

A CNET report says that IBM is backing PHP for web development. While the official word is that IBM will stay committed to Java, the report also quotes executives who say  that this move reflects IBM’s disillusionment with the Java standardization process and the industry’s inability to make Java very easy to use.

The report goes on to say that  "Big Blue’s public commitment to PHP is significant because the company
has the technical and marketing resources to accelerate usage of the
open-source product. IBM’s investments in Linux and Java, for example,
were crucial to mainstream corporation adoption of those technologies."
