    .net technology question

    I just started reading an old book I had bought about ASP 3.0 abd it got me thing about the .Net technology. I don't really know that much about it can some one fill me it? Is it worth reading about the older ASP stuff or should I just drop it and go to the newer .Net Technology?

    What do you all think

    Classic ASP/vbScript is being phased out now. It's being replaced by ASP.net which is far more powerful and reliable than classic asp. However, I'm sticking with php

    It isn't worth learning classic ASP, however I think that some (or most? ) of the functions of it have been added in ASP.net. However I don't know, as I'm not a ASP developer.

    Thank for the info. I think that I will continue on with setting up my computer with apache and php, wjicj is what I started out to do in the first place! Since I can't afford the .net stuff anyway and apache and PHP is free.

    What of the .net stuff can you not afford? and what is not free? The IDE , the web server (cassini) , or the framework

    and if you believe that ms is evil and all that mess then there is always mono or how about something that runs off a CD

    I would dump asp/vbscript and go with .net or php.
    does this sig match?

    I've never liked ASP - I tried to learn it a while back, but came too confusing and difficult to program. PHP on the other side of the stick is great. I dont know about ASP.NET tho, as I have never used it.

    Thanks for the info allida77! I thought that you needed the Visual Studio .net from Microsoft to be able to use and learn the .net stuff.

    I have stoped reading the old ASP 3.0 book on everyones advise and got a book from the Library about asp.net. Since I am out of work right now I go through the want adds in the paper and see a lot of openings looking for people that know SAP. Dose anyone know what SAP is? It dosn't have anything to do with creating web pages does it?
