weakness in ASP.NET?

hi, from PHP or JSP users' mind, what's the weakness with ASP.NET?
any opinions are appreciated.
side question: is it true that ASP.NET can only be used with IIS? is
IIS a huge trouble maker? will IIS affect the performance of ASP.NET?
thankx.

Lack of flexibility. Total reliance on Javascript.

Ehhh?

Define "Lack of flexibility".

"Total reliance on Javascript"???

I've written 25-30 medium sized sites & web applications in
Asp.net now, and I don't quite understand that statement?

In web applictions, the only feasible client-side language
*is* JavaScript! I don't understand what this have to do
with Asp.Net?

The weakness IMO, is the vendor "lock-in" and the total lack of cross
platform availability.
side question: is it true that ASP.NET can only be used with IIS?
To my knowledge, yes. It is true that the full ASP.NET system can only
be used with IIS.

(There is something called "Mono"(?), that is a U*ix implementation
of the CLR, that is supposed to run ASP.Net scripts, but I don't
know anything about it's state).
Is IIS a huge trouble maker?
Depends on what you mean by "trouble maker". Several of my sites run on
IIS without any problems so far. But yes, there have been more security
issues involving IIS that i.e Apache.
Will IIS affect the performance of ASP.NET?


As long as ASP.NET only run properly under IIS, of course it will!

By relying on client side processing, you are limiting your potential market
to only those organisations which allow users to have scripting enabled in
their browsers. This is still regarded as ciminal negligence in
organisations with a tendency towards security - which by definition does
not include those running certain browsers which shall remain nameless. "8-D

Which, in turn means, like 85% of the market... (the nameless one, I
mean...)

Just out of curiosity, not trying to spring a debate, but where those sites
just written using .asp (active server pages), or were they using remote
objects as to the core of .NET? As in Aplication Serving over http via .NET
that requires a .NET server, not just IIS with .asp parsing.

Sorry... My terminology...

Site = .asp
Web App = remote objects (.Net server)

So... some of each... Mostly Web-apps.

If you like working with editors and don't really want to care about how
things work (as long as they do work) you might prefer the Microsoft way and
Visual Studio.

If you want to keep control about everything and do not rely on the ease of
an editor you will prefer PHP.

By total reliance on Javascript I'm referring to ASP.Net's event-driven
model, which doesn't work if Javascript is disabled.

That true when you need even-based webpage, but we need javascript to do so
on the client side, so what's the problem, even you do a website in PHP, JSP
or whatever, you will all need JS to do the same thing.

You dont have to use the wizard all the time, myself, I mostly create
ASP.NET website by hardcoding myself the code. It like you telling HTML is
not good because WYSIWYG is poor coding.
