Nice link :)

But can you run ASP on a linux box? because if not then its not free… If you set up a windows server you have to pay for a windows licence, where as you don’t with Linux… ASP of course itself is free, but this is one of the main reasons why PHP took off is the fact that linux dosnt need a licence.

Basically it costs more to run ASP than PHP.
