Open Source Website

Working on a website for my brother-in-law.

In my working life, I’ve always worked for people with money to burn. Now I’m working for someone with no money at all. Limited to the tools I can use (PHP and MySQL). What a difference! You may think Open Source is the way to go; avoid the ‘Evil Empire’ and all that, but using this would cost ten times as much as a genuine commercial site. I could easily do this in a tenth of the time using MS. The open source languages may be free, but there are reasons for that –  so outdated, outmoded and arcane! You think it’s more secure? It isn’t – much more open if anything. The reason no one attacks these sites is that no one making serious money would dream of using this kind of software.
