Campag you give the perfect world example.  But if you go into any practical 
application development with ASP.NET, you will find that databinding and 
gridview/formview or whatever control you are using begins to lose its purpose. 
 So then you are forced to drag form elements and then coding the form/error 
handling, then programmatically create a connection string in  your web.config 
file.  Then you have do the code behind page, call the connections and actually 
do something with the form variables, like insert or update.  Then you get 
something that looks and feels more familiar to asp classic.  Don't forget you 
postback to either hide the form variables and say thank you or redirect the 
user to another page.  

 And Mister Compag how can you compare that to the cfform were everything can 
be set like the default values, error handling, messages, etc.  Then skipping 
all the database crap (since it is registered with the server), and then 
creating a simple cfif statement for the form submission response and 
insert/update cfquery code.

 You can't in 'real world' 'practical scenarios' say that ASP.NET is faster, or 
better looking than CF.  Unless you are a Microsoft paid operative here to 
cause trouble...If that is the case, you should really spend your free time 
helping the poor suckers on the forums figure out how to run their $300 
copy of  Visual Studio to over their new $150-$600 copy of Windows Vista.
