Computing resource constraints is not my main concern with LAMP: Lack of 
a sysadmin is!

PHP being popular does not make it safe!  I would not want to run PHP on 
a box with no sysadmin to nurse it.

...Heck, I would prefer to not run PHP on *any* box, and in fact only 
one piece is missing to reach that goal for the servers I administrate: 

But that's just me.  No doubt some will feel fine shipping FreedomBox 
with PHP.  Good luck with that.
