I've been doing web dev for the past few years and have gotten to a few languages, but not CF. To be honest it always interested me to know, but I just never had the will or the opportunity to learn it. Coming from a Java background I'm interested because it's a lot simpler then Java (ideal for simple web dev) but I imagine since it runs on Java it has a lot of power under the hood as well.
I want an honest, not bias opinion about Cold Fusion, is it worth it? What advantages are there over other popular languages like PHP. ASP.NET, etc.
