I really don't know what the difference between .NET web programming and ASP. If you want to give me a quick summary feel free to do so, but PHP is rocks and that's all I care about!!
ASP is a lot like PHP, but many less features and overall worse in my opinion. ASP.net only has the name in common, nothing else is the same. ASP.net has you program a page in HTML and their language, then you have a codebehind. The codebehind is unique since it is actually VB or C# (they have ports for languages like C++, but those aren't as featured with Visual Studio). Your code is actually compiled into machine code and hooked up with your script. This means that your core level function are already compiled into machine code, making them very fast.
This also gives you seemless integration with your existing VB applications. For instance, I am making a DLL that can pull and process data from a feed. I will be using it both in a computer and web application. They can both use the same DLL with extreme ease. This ups productivity time and blurs the generally rigid line between computer programming and web programming.
