    I'll echo what monNom said, and add to it. In addition to a million tutorials and resources, PHP is uses a C style syntax. So, when you want to learn another language like C++, C#, Java, or even Objective-C, it will be much easier. Assuming you'll want to, of course. Hell, it will even help with Javascript as the syntax is pretty similar there too.

    As far as Ruby or Python "forcing you" to write better code. You can write shit code in any language. It may be easier to do so in PHP since it's not strict object oriented.

    Ruby and Python gigs are more lucrative (at the moment), and I really like the way Rails works. But ,I still think PHP is better as a first language to learn.
