I had to go back to doing some PHP code for my personal website ... and boy did I miss using .NET and Visual Studio.

I've been through .Net and Visual Studio for web applications, and God, is it tedious. That's why we all moved to Ruby and Rails where I work.

The most tedious part of any .Net application is the deployment though. It's bloody awful.

I couldn't agree more actually. ASP.Net Forms, which is what I assume you are referring to, was just a major blunder from MS. Trying to make a desktop development model work over http, with the ugly hack that view state is, was a seriously bad idea.

MVC however is what the MS web kids are using these days and it is sooooooo much better.

With a ASP.NET Website you just upload the files ... and they are recompiled on the fly ... are you serious?

I never needed to deploy more than a couple of versions of a ASP.NET webapp but I googled it ...

Oh ... a few lines of in the command prompt ... fuck me must be mind bending.

There's more to deployment than just uploading some files. Compared to using Capistrano and SSH with keys for authentication this is from the dark ages. xcopy..... Pffffff.

Don't even get me started on a more desktop oriented application......
