ColdFusion is fine. There is simply a slight tradeoff where
ColdFusion is somewhat easier to use and PHP is somewhat
more flexible. Similar problems can usually be solved with
either. Of course, some of us find PHP easier to use
*because* it is more flexible, feeling too restricted
otherwise. So, it is all a matter of taste.

I am not sure what, "is it Enterprise?" means. While
Macromedia releases different versions of CF depending on
how much money you spend, PHP is PHP. If they mean to ask
if it is ready for the Enterprise, then they are just
trolling. Tell them to ask Yahoo! or any of the companies I
have consulted for in the last three years.

As for release date, the other poster correctly said, "when
it is ready." I have seen many people ask, and the only
answer I've seen from any of the core developers was
something like the end of 2003 plus or minus 9 months. :-)
