There's an excellent article published on the ability to do serious scaling for mega appications. This would seem to suggest that the frequent criticisms of PHP as good but somewhat 'lightweight' scripting language will need to undergo some revisions.

That article has a lot of excellent links and is well worth the read if you're interested in serious PHP applications.

You can read the Friendster troutgirl blog entry directly if you'd like.
