I have recently been hearing rumours that Coldfusion may go the way of the Dinosaurs. Then I have also heard similar rumours about asp .net, have any of you heard any similar rumours? Anybody have any theories they would like to express?

I'm new to posting and have read that it is better to add to a old post then to create a new one...
I am currently trying to figure out not only if this is true about coldfusion being outdated, but given an unbiased choice which is really the better language to program in. I have been told that for large corporate environments ASP.net must be used because it is the most adaptable to future changes and integrates better into microsoft environments. I see this language as being more complicated to make simple programs, but I think that it might be better than coldfusion for more advanced web applications and integration. Is this true? I would like to know your opinions on both languages. Also for large applications do you have to have Visual Studio.net or can you just use the asp.net web matrix?

I'd go with ASP.net for certain - simply because of far superior integration with other Microsoft components.

Well I would use ASP.Net. ColdFusion may be easier to learn but ASP.Net is probably used more than ColdFusion. ASP.Net 2.0 should be coming out this year I believe and is supposedly easier than ASP.Net 1.0. You can search on Google to find all kinds of articles on this.
Also, you can use ASP Web Matrix to build small web applications. I use it for my Windows XP Home Edition PC because XP Home doesn't have IIS. It's good for the beginner ASP.Net developer. For large web application I would suggest using Visual Studio. I'm still trying to learn ASP.Net, so I'm no means an expert on it. Hope this helps.
