    PHP and windows 8

    I want to use some kind of server side language, like php (highly preferably php if that is possible because I know the language...) to develop windows 8 metro apps, but I don't know how.

    Does anyone know how I can do this? I couldn't find anything about it online, since win8 came out yesterday for developers.

    If you don't have it already, I highly recommend you get it at dev.windows.com. You can use HTML5 and JavaScript to make apps that you can sell

    I think you can still use PHP (Try xampp or wamp or lamp)
