ColdFusion MX 7 - Developer's Edition
So. I took the next step and downloaded, and installed, ColdFusion MX 7.01, Developer's Edition, on my home computer. (I also picked up another 512 MB of memory from Crucial.com, but that's another story.)
Why? Well, I needed the memory for the programs I'm using. Why ColdFusion? Because I'm using it at work anyways, and the Developer Edition is free. When presented with that, why not? Sure, I've got Apache running on the same machine, and I can already program in so many languages, but I'd really like to be able to write CF code for ... fun. Yikes. Seriously, it's an interesting, and fun, language.
Can CF do lots of unique things that other languages can't do? Maybe - I don't know. But I do know that I've got to use it, so use it I will.
Of course, you won't see CF used on the StrivingLife.net Network, since I'm sure iPowerWeb won't be purchasing and installing ColdFusion - why bother, and would it even run on BSD? But, you may see snippets of code floating about. And heck, if I can find a way to run ASP for nothing, maybe I'll add that to my machine as well. Since I want to pick up another computer anyways, why not?
