Not to start a battle, but I'd like to see the ratio of php to asp programmers here... I've always argued with coworkers and friends which is used mroe and I'd like to see it from you guys...

ASP is irrelvant, has been for 2 years now. ASP is an old language, like BASIC. It's almost pointless to use it anymore. Your poll should be ASP.NET vs PHP. It's cheating to compare PHP to ASP, which is the same as it was 8 years ago.

ASP (vbscript or jscript) and PHP are similar in one big way - they are both scripting languages. The .net platform uses compiled code which makes it in a league above php, imo. Matt is right in that nothing has changed with asp because m$ has spent all their effort to make sure .jsp doesn't take over the market and develped .net. As far as poplarity goes I would have to say it's .net versus php and not asp3.0 . and there is no reason to limit yourself to one language.

well php can not compete with .net they arent even in the same ball park. BUt theres a big BUT.....php server as the best tool for everyday (web) programers using mysql.
Were if falls short in my opinion is in building complete web aplications. Thats were the .net kills the rest, corporations needing intergration and expandability will HAVe to resont to .net for a complete solution. Thats just in my point of view.

what are you saying matboy.... good gawd

relevancy is based on the host operating system, and the avaialble server (side) language it supports....

Nt platforms support .asp (Needs IIS web server and extensions - supports access/SqlServer)
Unix platforms support .php (Needs Apachie web server and other modules - particularly MYSQL for backend)

though both languages are capable of the same things, there dependencies are entirely exclusive.... yet, you can install Apache on an NT machine, and enable .asp on a Unix box, its not without limitations

I use WinXp/with IIS installed and develope dynamic .asp websites communicating with access/SqlServer

I also have php/MySql installed and often swith back and forth for when I realize the clients hosting envioronment.

Though .Net is taking off, I think it will be awhile for it to actually replace .asp.

just my .02 worth

.asp on a Unix machine doesn't use vBscript or Jscript - it's Perl based, so the 2 aren't really compatable.

it won't be long before there is a .net - like platform (besides Java) for .php/perl based languages.

and the only reason you can't install iis or windows .asp or .net on a *nix environment is because microsoft won't let you - legally.

But regualr old .asp does quite a bit - it's just .php is still in development while .asp 3 is not and hasn't been for a while. They do once and a while fix or alter vBscript still.

dim sucks
Argument OVER!
I love PHP
Scripting languages glue together compiled components
I make compiled components for fun
Prolog really sucks...
