    I prefer PHP.


    also keep in mind ASP and ASP.net are two different languages and hence have different ways of working.

    ASP is fast at work where as what ever you wrote above is true for ASP.NET and not classic ASP.

    The original ASP (called Classic ASP) was the forerunner for PHP. The languages are similar in many ways. ASP was the top server-side language in the late 1990s and early 2000s. It was very easy to learn, but has been abandoned by Microsoft who would prefer that everyone focus on ASP.NET. The problems with ASP.NET is that it is much more complicated and locks you into a Microsoft server environment.

    PHP is much easier to learn than ASP.NET and it is less expensive to maintain PHP web sites.

    ASP that runs on multiple operating systems, incuding Linux, Windows
    solaris and other OS.
    Speed PHP is relatively much more faster and stable than ASP, ASP
    is built on a COM-based architecture so when ever a program tries to
    connect to a database or he calls a COM object there is an overhead on
    the server, All this COM overhead adds up and slows things down. Under PHP, everything runs in PHP's memory
    space. This means that PHP code will run faster because there is no
    overhead of communicating with different COM objects in different
    processes. Again ASP is slower and more memory intensive applications
    than PHP's model because each ASP language compiler runs in its own
    process.
    Price
    PHP installtions are definetly cheaper to install, PHP runs great on
    Linux which is free, on the other hand ASP runs on the IIS Server
    (Internet Information Server) which need's Windows N.T/2000/2003
    Servers.
    Apart from that ASP mostly uses MS-SQL Server as the back end which
    again is expensive, Where as PHP programmes mostly use MySQL which is
    again FREE!

    A lot of myths about ASP in your thread

    PHP is not faster than ASP.

    ASP do not mostly use MS-SQL

    You forgot to say that many programs or modules do not work with PHP

    You can even have Apache mod_rewrite compatible URL rewriter for Microsoft IIS

    On the web, PHP is much bigger, and so much easier to find developers, scripts and code. That is why I chose it.

    All claiming ASP.net to be proprietary and PHP to be open source.


    what would you say when we introduce Mono to the equation.
