PHP is not a fanclub anymore

Sterling Hughes: "I was talking [...] with Thies at Linuxtag [...] about the difference between a fanclub and a business. Thies pointed out that PHP was no longer a fanclub, but was very much a business....

In the early days of a system, it is a fanclub. You are all happily hacking away. If you break backwards compatibility, so it goes. You change things, they break, you drink a beer, you fix them and move on. This allows for a lot of cool ideas, and also some very stupid ideas. But its all in good fun; and its all about working together with other like minded people on a project you believe in."
