ASP.net or ASP?

Since ASP.net needs .net to be installed, and can only
run on Microsoft servers, but PHP can run on Apache and UNIX, etc.
and on Microsoft servers, would it be worth while using it?

Is .net gaining popularity? What are the costs involved in upgrading to it
and porting the source code to .net(VC++, VB)?

I heard that IIS has lots of bugs, so people are sticking to the free Apache.
Perhaps staying with ASP (not .net) and PHP is better until .net gains ground.

Yes.

Not gaining...gained. It's been here for almost 3 years now.

Much of what you've said are generalities. Some people use Apache others
don't. Some might say IIS has "bugs", others would say that it's a good
target if you want to make a name for yourself as a hacker.
