I keep hearing rumors that MS will stop supporting Classic ASP. Can anyone point me to some articles to support a roadmap or timeline?

Thanks,

Scott

The best that I can tell it will be supported as long as Windows Vista, since it is included with Vista. I am not sure if it is included with Window 2008 Server or not. I know it comes with Windows 2003 server still and will be supported as long as Windows 2003 server is.

It will be supported for a long, long time, even if it was dropped from future server versions you can install the dll yourself.

Good for MS I think. As the users who dont upgrade to ASP.NET are transfering to PHP. I personally will be moving the rest of my classic ASP apps to PHP as I'm finding it easier and cheaper to transfer.

Thats thier plan & thats why the market is real good for .NET & SQL Web skills

I would just leave your classic asp alone and learn php for new projects. PHP will be a good choice if you are using JavaScript etc.
