I think you mean as opposed to Java ... PHP on the server vs Javascript on the client are at opposite ends of the spectrum and serve very different needs (more so then than now with things like node.js).

You know, to me, I like that so much more than websites I see nowadays. I know I'm probably in the minority, but I think present day websites have way too much fluff and not enough info.

No, you are not alone. I totally get turned off with too busy web sites. I am not even going to comment on those with a Flash video intro!

I love sites with simple, legible text and content placement. A good example, imho, would be the font page of a newspaper.

Totally agree. I mean, as plain as Craig's List is, for example, it's easy to navigate and I can quickly find whatever it is I'm searching for. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting web designers go all text and no graphics, but I'm so sick of websites with flash videos and/or the same basic Wordpress template that seems to be the popular choice.

It's easy to install and easy to maintain and a lot of people don't want to deal with the backend. When you start dealing with Wordpress, Drupal etc what separates the men from the boys is custom templates, designs.

Understood about the backend stuff. I just miss simple websites. Heck, I miss people, professionals and amateurs, doing their own websites. Facebook and Myspace really killed people's desire to have their own website.

IMO personal blogs have done as much to replaced the personal website as social media has.

Yeah, I suppose that has sort of helped to replace the personal website too. But I have to admit, I still enjoy going to the Wayback Machine and surfing old websites off of the old Yahoo.com.
