VS.Php Comments

I think it's great that this company is promoting PHP to the microsoft based programmers. I have not personally tested this as I do not have VS, but if I did I would give it a go.

They are looking for beta testers for this product, so if you have VS why not help them out and give it a test.

I have given it 5 stars only to put it higher up in the list for now. Once some reviews come in I can edit the rating if required.
