Hey everyone. I've been looking to do some web development lately for personal ideas. I've been developing at work using ASP.net and C# with SQL. I've come to learn it pretty well considering I have a background in C++ and Java. I want to find a language I can host on a non-Windows environment that will be an easy transition from what I have gained experience in. So I'm considering PHP and J2EE already. What are some other alternatives and some positives and negatives to these languages? Thanks! I also have Rapidweaver already (MacHeist ) which kind of makes me want to go with PHP, so I don't know.
