That article makes a lot of bogus claims and is full of hype.  LAMP is
a nice way to throw a small site together without much fuss, sort of
like fancy xerox machines are a nice way to print a small-run
publication without much fuss.  If you want to do something big, you
still need an actual printing press.  Hint: Google.com is not a LAMP
site despite that article's insinuation.  Yes, Google uses Python for
lots of internal projects and maybe administrative pages.  The search
engine is not a Python app.
