Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I'm in the process of making the specs. for a web app.
I was going to base it on Apache and PHP but the end users are begging me for a .Net UI because they are used to .Net and XP. To be honest I to think that the .Net UI is nice.
Having said that I would hate to base the app. on an expensive and slow MS platform. So my question is:
Is it possible to an open source platform for backend and .net for front end? Or even better. Can I program a .Net like UI in PHP?
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.
PHP is server-side only, so the only interface you can really create with that is with a web-browser.
