    I don't want to get into any holy wars, but a few clarifications:

    a) ASP is free
    b) while I much prefer the Perl coding I am doing now, when I had to do ASP, the Microsoft mailing lists were active and had Microsoft bodies monitoring for accuracy and timely responses (this was >1 yr ago, tho).

    There are plenty of *real* reasons to hate Microsoft; no need to make any up.

    Steve - you are right ASP is free - you do however need to pay out big bucks to use it! - NT is not free Access is not free IIS is not free - its a bit like giving someone a free car ... but the engine costs $50,000.

    OK if you have windows at home PWS and ASP come 'free' with it but it still is not free, and I do not hate Microsoft or anything like that - I use windows & will continue to do so however 'cool' some open-source platforms are supposed to be, but PHP at the present time is just better/faster/easier than ASP fullstop.
