ASP.NET is the replacement for ASP. There will be no new versions of "classic" ASP.

I agree. I don't like .NET too. It's much more different than ASP and from the regular web stracture.

I am the same BarrMan :) I really enjoy ASP but also javascript and Actionscript and CSS.. i like the hands on approach creating a web page.... using .NET components for everything looses this.... That is why i am thinking of moving to PHP...

bill gates should take a long hard look in hte mirror...

Um, you can do inline scripting with .NET, if that's your cup of tea. If you want to ignore the power of it and just use the old way, you can certainly make your .NET stuff look just as messy and disorganized as your classic ASP. ;)

Personally, now that I'm used to it, I'd never go back.
I never have to code a fricken loop through a recordset with all the horror of formatting again, and I LOVE it. GridView is the bomb.

Guys,

Trust me once you learn .NET you will enjoy it. It gives a big advantage of not using Javascript. You can do whatever you want just like VB programs. Plus many new components. But if you are interested in PHP style more. I recommend you to have a look at the new Delphi libraries which has some kind of similar advantages like .NET :)

Thanks
