Maybe, LOL, on what grounds ? I do not know where it outperforms and that might explain why MS is open sourcing it, right ?
.Net is dead, Jim.
>Presumably pointing out that a Microsoft product outperforms an Open Source one doesn't go down well here.
I know you guyz hate facts from independent sources ... let me introduce netcraft.com ... now, guess what, Linux and FreeBSD have been outperforming Windows Server, day in, day out, consistently for almost 20 years now. Thought I would let you know.
Besides, who is the numpty who would want to write a web page in .net ? Seriously ? I mean, JSP/JEE, AMP and the like run on all platforms ... now, why would you decide to write a web site that only runs on a platform that has been consistently under-performing for almost 20 years when you could use technology that runs on most web platforms, including Windows ? Brain dead, thought so. We moved off ASP/.Net 5 years ago for a good reason. We had a product on ASP/.Net because we bought the company.
