Aye aye aye, not another one of these posts. It's this type of "fanboy" mentality that leads to flame wars across the internet. Don't get me wrong, I have been bleeding Microsoft colors for over 10 years now and am content with what .NET offers. On the flip side of things, if I was working in an all *nix envionrment and the sysadmin wouldn't let me use MONO or the like, I probably would be in the PHP camp.

Being "better" is relative to what you are trying to accomplish and what you have to work with.

 .NET is nice, and fast, but there are some really stupid things i wish it could do easily, like inserting simple inline code, like a php include, or another thing i rant into recently when doing simple text formatting on data output from a database into xhtml, like adding breaks and proper spaces using entities, .NET converts the "&" into & on its own on the way out to the screen.
