I'm intrigued.  How come the leading & greatly revered open source apps,
like wordpress, drupal & joomla use only php instead of any of those

cannot produce better applications than these even though some of then
were around far longer than php.

I'm ready to switch if there were any convincing proof rather than mere
statements like these.
