ASP.NET has the obvious limitation of that you have to be running IIS to use it, I just like Apache a lot more.
VBulletin was built with PHP for a reason.
Any .NET language is compiled into MSIL or bytecount / machine code, which is much lower level and faster for the machine to execute. PHP is also another type of language as its interpreted, not a language compiled into machine code first and then executed, it has to be interpreted on every request (assuming you don't have any optimizer) which isn't a fast task compared to a .NET language.
