    Cold Fusion is a server side scripting language like PHP or ASP. Now I'm not all that familiar with PHP since I work mostly on NT Servers but CF is much better than ASP. Its less technical than ASP, it has more functions than ASP, its easier to learn than ASP. Its true with ASP you can create and add functions and whatnot, but out of the box CF does things better. I really like Cold Fusion. People say it wont be around much because its commercial, which is true, but I'm not my hosting company so I don't really worry about the price, and it's a great language to use.

    ps check out a Cold Fusion book by Ben Forta, its a very very comprehensive book, the most comprehensive book I own.

    That's what I always seem to hear as well; incredibly easy to use and reasonably powerful, but obviously commercial and for use on only an NT Server; or are there exceptions now?

    ColdFusion may be the answer if you want to slap a database on the web quickly, although I personally use PHP; I think it'll be around longer.

    CF is not NT only, CF runs on Solaris and a few other operating systems and it is being ported to Linux as well.
