I don't know how to answer this poll, since it only lets you check one option and I want to check most of them. So I'll just answer them point-by-point instead.

Yes, very easy, but also very robust and powerful.
Easy to use with other modules (apache,mysql...) ?
Yes, though a bit tricky with Apache 2, and sometimes getting certain extension to work (especially if you need to recompile) can take a bit of work, but all of the functions for interoperating with other software are intuitive and well-thought-out.
Easy to find Bugs|errors ?
Usually, but not always. A syntax-highlighting editor helps a lot.
You are using PHP on *nix machine, and found good ?
Yes, though I've never installed it on a *nix machine, only using a preexisting setup maintained by someone else. (Have you hugged your BOFH today?)
You are using PHP on win* machine , and found good?
Easy in it's installation, configuration ?
Yes. (see above)
Have you made any extension for you own use ?
Will you use it for further developement ?
Do you find's it's help easily for managing your problems ?
Very much. I very rarely have to ask questions because the documentation is very complete and the comments in the documentation fill in most of the holes.
Have you done anything to improve this open source product (php) ?
I haven't contributed to the codebase, but I like to think I've contributed to the community by using PHP exclusively and helping here on a PHP forum.
My own questions:
- If there's anything you would add to or change in PHP, what would it be?
- What other web technologies have you used? e.g. ASP, JSP, etc. How do they compare to PHP, in your opinion?
