I suppose that's a matter of opinion.  One thing's for sure:  where I 
work, ASP is the "official" scripting language.  If my boss really knew 
the difference, I'd have to use ASP instead.  I get around it by not 
bringing the subject up and by keeping my head down.

I was talking with John "Maddog" Hall last week and he shared another 
story of some guys he knew (back in the mid-90s) who had the same 
situation as me -- they basically were told to set up a server.  No 
other instructions.  So they set up a Linux box, recognizing its virtues 
and technical prowess.  When Maddog asked them what their boss thought 
about that, they sheepishly replied that he didn't know -- they figured 
they'd wait a YEAR before telling him so that they'd have a good point 
if it came down to an argument.

Much as I'd love to evangelize my open source philosophy and the merits 
of my Linux/MySQL/PHP installation, it's going to have to wait until I'm 
done with this project.
