I've been doing extensive research into various other web design company's in my local area. I've noticed a very high proportion of them use Microsoft's .NET along with the whole Visual Basic 'programming language'... (doesn't the B stand for 'Beginners'?) I myself program all my websites in PHP, looking into Coldfusion and Ruby on Rails as well... I was wondering why a higher proportion of these web design companies use all .NET stuff - is it better than PHP or what???
