What do you think, overall, which technology is better?

Many people are saying that PHP is better but we all know that it isn't simple as that, after all web development (and web design) is business and hence technologies of the corporate giants have a story of their own. I am asking of you to be critical minded and to take as many things as you can into consideration.

The PHP versus NET debate really comes down to how you use it. If I ask the question which is better, A spoon or a Fork, what's the answer? You'll get 40 people saying spoon, 40 peopel saying fork, and 20 people saying neither, use a knife!

I personally use PHP, but then I've not had a reason to use ASP. I don't personaly use windows servers, so PHP has been good for my needs.

What are some advantages of ASP - database connectivity, the ability to create dynamic web sites and the ease of creating sites to sell inventory - especially if you're already using II3.0 or up.

In my experience, this has been true of every single hypothetical "which is better?" scenario involving programming languages. It has everything to do with your specific concept and needs. There's no one-size-fits-all language.

Depends on what type of website you're going to create, however it is sure that PHP still regarded as stand alone scripting language.

I have a friend that dabbles in both technologies. He says that ASP is by far more powerful one, more reliable and more secure. He also says that ASP is not for everybody to use, while PHP is a kids play compared to ASP.

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.

Im a fan of PHP and use it mainly as its 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 youd require, more so for open source apps such as CMSs, Blogs and forums.

I am not a programmer, just designer who does HTML, XHTML, CSS, and a little bit of JavaScript. This is why I don't have an opinion on this matter. Thanks for yours.

I program in PHP daily. Never needed to use ASP for any of my applications. I would venture to say that in any language, you can have a programmer accomplish the same things. I used Pascal years ago, C++, Basic and even asembly for various projects over the years. It all depends which one you're most comfortable with, and which one accomplishes the job either better or faster.

I normally do xHTML and CSS but when the time comes I do a bit of PHP, mainly because my hosts use Linux and only support PHP.

I've seen more PHP pages than ASP but I noticed that more corporate websites use ASP than PHP. I personally still prefer PHP

Some of the reasons for ASP in the Corporate world is pretty much the same reason that many corporations will not move to open source software - accountability. Commercial products means that someone is ultimately responsible if there was a security breach or bugs etc.

Shopping carts that are paid are usually pretty good about getting a security bug fixed quickly and issued to their clients within hours or days, whereas a FREE shopping cart you can be waiting weeks or months before a fix is ever released. Or in the case of some carts, the developers just abandon the project and leave users to fend for themselves.

It's not the only reason, but it's a big reason from the responsibilty end of things.
