This may be a stupid question, but why choose PHP over an Access database?

Assume your webserver is running on Apache on Linux, where you can not 
run Access MDB. 
You can have your ACcess on an IIS web server on NT/2000. Have a PHP 
over IIS to act as a bridge/proxy to communicate data to and fro from 
the Linux server. 
Perhaps the documentation and help of ADODB API for PHP (database 
wrapper utility) at http://php.weblogs.com/ would explain this in 
really cool and convincing way.
