Default Simple question

Hey guys how is everyone today?.
Well this is my first post and first and foremost i must say wrox kick ass.

So far I have acquired Active server page 3.0 and Javascript and recently an html book by these guys. Anyhow my simple question which may sound extremely noob to all of you is this.

What is the difference between ASP and ASP.NET?
Right now im about halfway through my asp book and I ve been so far practicing a lot with database using access and implementing it with my own little projects.

I just wanted to know simply what is the difference, and will it replace asp anytime soon. Also if I wanted to program in ASP.NET can i still use text editor like I use for ASP or do i need MS visual studios.

Last but not least advantages/disadvantages for ASP.NET is highly appreciated.

Ok sorry it was a long question hahah.
Take care guys:D

Welcome - BTW: no question is stupid

There is alot of information on the www about this. I am a classic ASP programmer with little .net experience. What I know:

ASP .NET has better language support, a large set of new controls and XML based components, and better user authentication and state management. It also provides better performace by running compiled code. Apparently better deployment options also.

;;;will it replace asp anytime soon
IMO certainly not

;;;do i need MS visual studios
Yes

Thankyou for replying. I guess for now I will stick with ASP until I feel im ready to move up to the big world of .NET
Although I hear many stories of how .NET will revolutionize the way we do things, I guess it will take sometime until I do so..Hell I still hear Java was going to be obsolete and that was many years ago...but still until this day it is still growing strong :D

For now my goal is experimenting all types of database with ASP...soon I will see if its possible to connect to oracle db, or even mySQL...by the way is it even possible to do this?...remember im a rookie at this lol.

Anyhow take care guys and thankyou again for your reply mat41
