Comparison? ASP.NET vs good old ASP with C++ COMs?

Folks,

I have a client who will likely be looking at ASP.NET in the near
future. They have an internal developer who is convinced there are
"scalabilit y problems" with ASP.NET. This client has a very large, very
critical, growing ASP app that I built with them in classic ASP, so they
are interested in the benefits of moving up to something better.

I want to convince them to go with ASP.NET -- preferrably VB.NET, but C#
would be fine too. This internal dude wants them to stick with ASP and
rewrite the business code in C++.

I would like to put some hard numbers in front of the client, to show
the higherups that ASP.NET will be the better choice in terms of
performance & scalability. Or if the numbers are just not that
compelling, that's fine; I can argue for all the other ASP.NET benefits
of management, installation, stability, etc.

But for the life of me, I can't find any industry comparison results to
present to this client. I know about the one comparison with the Java
petshop thing, but we're not looking at Java. I want to show him them
the numbers between C++ and ASP.NET (again, either VB.NET or C#).

Links? Suggestions?

Chris,
Thanks, yes, this is excellent stuff. I'm keeping the link, to help
make the case when the day comes.

This article does a nice job of presenting how good ASP.NET could be in
terms of scalability, etc. for one company. But the comparison here is
between Java and .NET. I need to make the case for .NET versus C++ with
COM+. Anything more you can suggest, would be much appreciated.

Hi , my boss has asked I sit in on an interview this afternoon and that I create some interview questions on the person's experience. What is C++ used for and why would a company benefit from someone who could use it? I would like you guys/and gals to give me some good questions & the correct answers so I can give this person a good review for my boss.

Hi I am looking at some code which in many places performs string comparison using == instead of Equals. Am I right in assuming that this will in fact work "as expected" when it is strings involved? By "as expected" I mean that as long as the strings are instantiated using string literals, then == and Equals are the same. string s1 = "xxx";

Hello, Guido has decided, in python-dev, that in Py3K the id-based order comparisons will be dropped. This means that, for example, "{} < " will raise a TypeError instead of the current behaviour, which is returning a value which is, really, id({}) < id(). He also said that default equality comparison will continue to be identity-based. This means that x == y will never raise an exception, as is the situation is now. Here's his reason:
