For now I think this is mainly interesting for „researchers“ willing to work on improving the compatibility and more importantly the workflow around HipHop. I do not expect that anyone can really get a meaningful return on investment who makes this their business anytime soon […]. Lukas Smith, 2010

You might just have shifted your scaling problem. To determine the right scaling measures, a decent amount of thorough code profiling is required, and you might as well have to rethink your software architecture.
Turns out, you might have to walk a long road until you can even start to dance the HipHop. Stefan Priebsch, 2010

For all the benefits, there is a large group of PHP developers that won’t benefit: the average, every day developer. There are a vast number of websites that have a single server and not very much traffic; there are also lots of sites that run on shared hosts, or sites that have multiple sites on the same server. Since HipHop runs one web application at a time (with a built-in webserver), it’s impossible at the moment to run more than one website on a box. This is obviously less than optimal […] Brandon Savage, 2010

[…] it is an incredibly impressive technical achievement that in the case of Facebook’s use-case makes a lot of sense. It is just that 99.9% of PHP deployments out there do not share the same challenges as Facebook (massive, continually evolving code base and equally massive traffic), where the delivered performance increase would justify the HipHop’s deployment and maintenance challenges. Ilia Alshanetsky, 2010

HipHop has the potential to be an incredibly disruptive product in the PHP landscape. If your company runs a PHP application that requires more than two servers (you’ll want two just for redundancy), you have no reason not to explore using HipHop. Marco Tabini, 2010

[Absatz What HipHop means] If you do not have a separate development and deployment environment, don’t have a developer who knows C/C++, or use any PHP libraries where the source is not available (thankfully the encoded scripting market is small to non-existent in the PHP world), then the answer is nothing. You don’t have the development model that can support HipHop. Terry Chay, 2010

HipHop also nur etwas für Profis am oberen Ende der Skala oder durchaus als schon ein tragfähiges Zukunftsmodell, das PHP auch aus Performance-Sicht auf ein Level mit Java & Co. stellt?
