Actually the Fantatico thing was a bad example on my part. Why on earth would they push PHP5, when the product they design their software for is one of the biggest obstacles facing hosting companies to move to PHP5 - Cpanel. CPanel really need some competition out there. I just wish I had the time hehe.
