It might seem a bit odd, but I've used it to do DB stuff in a "desktop"

Apart from that, I much prefer perls syntax than PHPs, and DBI in perl
is just great.  The Pear (PHP) DB abstraction layer also does a fair job
of being DB agnostic, as DBI does in Perl.

At the end of hte day, I don't think it really matters.  Go with what
you like.  I'll use both PHP and Perl and will muck about with other
languages (like java) when the mood strikes.
