SuSE, openSUSE Attachmate now owns Novell and therefore, by extension, also owns SUSE and openSUSE. With Oracle currently doing everything in its power to thoroughly destroy what's left of Sun's open source commitments, scepticism abound about the future of SUSE, and more specifically of openSUSE. Attachmate's CEO has answered some questions about the future of SUSE and openSUSE, and as far as words go, it's looking good.

I actually saw figures supporting this just the other week while looking at different web app frameworks. Can't remember where though but you don't have to be a genius to know that PHP is the most widely deployed one and that .Net isn't even on the map when it comes to public, high-volume sites. It's a good guess that Ruby On Rails is more popular than .net too.
Could be different for Intranet stuff but Java is pretty entrenched there so it might be a toss-up.

The only .net web app of any stature that I can recall right away is Dekiwiki.
