Member since:

If you have an ASP.NET application, isn't it the case that you will have to pay Microsoft (in terms of CALS for IIS) for each user of the application ... even if the ASP.NET application is actually your own in-house developed application?

I believe you are thinking about SharePoint, which requires a CAL for each user or a really expensive "anonymous" one. There shouldn't be any fee just for using vanilla IIS and ASP.NET.
