id dissagree, im a programmer by qualification as well as experience and i obviously code, I work well with both PHP and ASP.net. PHP has a wide array of database functions and can connect to a similar number of types.
These days in schools and colleges/uni java and vb.net amoung others are tought making asp.net an easy alternative you will also notice game developers again tend to use it as their programmers can use any .net language within asp.
I’m a fan of PHP and use it mainly as it’s easy to understand (especially with past C#. C++ and C knowledge) and very importantly runs on linux servers with mysql perfectly, achieving many of the tasks that you’d require, more so for open source apps such as CMS’s, Blogs and forums.
