I'm a recent convert to ASP.NET. I has the same misgivings as the next guy (esp after using ASP on IIS 5.0), but ASP.NET is extremely easy to use. It sure beats PHP for one good reason - I have a support library I wrote in C# that is used by my ASP.NET code, but will also be used in the big jump to a desktop version of my APP (converted from another RAD IDE.) Code once, use again.

If, indeed, ASP.NET is cross platform with Mono (didn't realise - will look into this), stuff becomes very interesting indeed.

I wouldn't waste my time learning PHP now, as I can certainly do everything I need in ASP.NET.
