Can I program a .Net like UI in PHP
I don't really know what you mean by that, if it's a web app then I would think so unless I am way off on what you mean.
I don't use .NET at all so I don't really know much about it.
anyone else have any thoughts?

Torben, if it's the IDE (Integrated Development Enviornment - the application you write code in) you like for .Net, have you considered checking out Zend Studio? It's an IDE for PHP that offers many of the features of VS.net.
If it's not the IDE you're talking about, then I'm lost.

OK, I'll try again
I'm not talking about IDE.
I've seen web applications based on ASP .Net, which looks just like compiled .Net applikations. Kind of like the XP look and feel.
What I want to know is if this is just nice graphics and client side scripting or server side ASP.Net in which case I will abandon the idea.
Maybe I should ask this question in the Microsoft forum.

If I understand what you're wanting to do (make a nice client-side application that runs outside of the browser, or is not dependent on the browser except to launch), then you may be interested in taking a look at Java.
PHP is server-side only, so the only interface you can really create with that is with a web-browser.

I wonder if you (or anyone reading here for that matter) has worked at all with the XML Windowing Toolkit [xwt.org] or XWT. It looks like it would really be the ticket for a custom client-server app that looked and felt like it was running locally, rather than within the browser.
