    It depends on what you are used to. If you have any prior progamming
    experience in VB, then I'd suggest that VB.NET (ASP.NET using VB) would be a
    shorter learning curve. But if you are strong with C-based languages, then
    ASP/NET with C++, ASP/NET with C#, or PHP would be easiest.

    Cold Fusion is easier in general, and if you are doing basic form stuff, it
    won't limit you.


    Also important to know is what your host supports. Many hosts will allow PHP
    but not ASP.NET, because they are on *nix, not Windows. Not every hosts
    offers Cold Fusion.

    Please note that all of the above have extensive learning curves. Any
    tutorial or book that promises to make you proficient in any server-side
    technology in a week is picking your pocket. It took me the better part of a
    year before I felt comfortable with ASP, and I still am learning. Now I'm
    learning ASP.NET, and it's a whole new thing.

    Take your pick.

    ASP.net - pros: fully object orientated. Fairly robust. cons: MS only ($$$).
    Needs VS.net to be truly useful

    PHP - pros: very widely used, open source. cons: none, really.

    Coldfusion - pros: easy to learn. cons: requirs a CF server ($$$)

    I'm learning asp.net, but only that's because what we use here at work. If I
    were to start from scratch, I'd probably go with PHP just because it's so
    widely used and open source.
