php4

Why are hosts still using php4 on there new servers? I really dont understand that, as php5 is now released for several years, and more stable and secure as php5. Many users say that there scripts will not work on php5, but why? That much changes arent there between functions in php4 and php5, so a lot scripts will work perfectly.

Not migrating to php5 is for a lot scripters a big problem, as they want to use the features that php5 have, but they cant use them because hosters are still using php4. I really hope this is going to change soon, when php4 is really EOL.

Also, the same thing is for mysql4.0 (And maybe 4.1 but that iam not sure about :P), thats also EOL, but still a lot hosts are using it.
