    I like it because you don't have to write a single line of HTML. That is really useful for me because I've traditionally done Windows apps in the past and it was easier for me.

    not really "better" i guess, just some functions that are purty sweet

  • March 28th, 2003, 11:19 PM
    You can also use more than VBScript with it. And I agree, ASP.Net is way better. Its very easy to use and learn in that you use full-fledged languages to program with it.

    hey apache and linux and php is all cool, just depends on what your using it for. as a more network driven person i find coding somewhat difficult to understand, and ASP.NET makes it simple. PHP is harder to understand, but like i said, it has its benefits. but then again, so does ASP.NET.

    BTW, ya we agreed to disagree, but that was about MS being a monopoly. Which I'm just about convinced they are. But ya, we can agree to disagree


    if you have a server or host that supports ASP I'd suggest learning it first and then moving on to PHP. Since ASP is easier, naturally you'd start at the bottom and work your way up

  • March 28th, 2003, 03:15 PM
    yah....... me and implexant could go rounds on the

    MS/ IIS 5.0/ASP/ VS. Linux/Apache/PHP

    But I think we agreed to just disagree

    PHP is awesome, i just think for what i use ASP for, its better than PHP. and somewhat easier to understand. now... PHP is much better for something, say like, forums. Its very fast

    Before you jump on the asp bandwagon............

    I like the open source concept period myself. With php and mysql your virtually guaranteed to be able to run it on any server. PHP uses similar syntax to C++ . Plus if you ever want to find out WHY something doesn't work on php you could get into the nuts and bolts of it........... with asp your locked out because it's a propriatary code.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    but ASP.NET is better than PHP however, PHP does have its features

  • March 28th, 2003, 02:19 PM
    In my opinion, PHP is the best alternative
  • March 28th, 2003, 02:10 PM
    thanks for the tips! gonna check them out and take a look at this MS stuff

  • March 28th, 2003, 02:01 PM
    An alternative for ASP would be PHP. But ASP.NET has greater functionality over PHP, IMO.
    You could also check out JSP (Java Servlet Pages) if you are totally anti-MS.
    ColdFusion might also be worth checking out.

    ASP works on Unix (or Linux) through an Apache mod called ChilliASP. Infact, sometimes it runs pages faster than a IIS 5 box I use alot of ASP on my pages. There is also ASP.NET and you need .NET Framework to run it. I like to use .NET Framework 1.1 Final Beta. works real well.

  • March 28th, 2003, 01:19 PM
    ah ok it's a MS product so forget it i thought it would be something usefull

    thanks for the reply!

    is there something which works nearly the same but is not MS and it works on Unix systems?

  • March 28th, 2003, 01:16 PM
    It's a MS-based idea-- So it works with VBscripts. Got a friend who does a lot with it, built an auction site for a company using ASP.
    As for servers, since it's MS, the server has to run Windows NT/2000 Server.
