Does anyone know what the difference is between ASP (.asp) and ASP.NET (.aspx)?

What does ASP.NET have that ASP doesn't?

.net appended ?

From what I gather it's suposed to make it easier to work with the .net framework. (.net passports, ect..)

Some seem to think it's just another "brilliant marketing scheme" by Microsoft. (paint a peach purple, call it a plum)

ASP is interpreted. ( script programming )
ASP.Net is compiled. ( very integrated )

There are many advantates of ASP.Net which cannot be described on one post reply.. :lol:

It's funny I was researching this for myself just last week. I'll give you the link that I found most beneficial to my search

so let me see if i understand this

ASP is interpreted
ASP.NET is compiled
ASP.NET is slightly faster because of it

ASP supports VBScript and JScript
ASP.NET supports VB, Jscript, C++ and C#
ASP.NET has more language support

Code is not backwards compatible


Thanks.

I think that's quite possibly understated, but it looks like you have the idea.
