I want to link to Scott Bellware's post on attitudes regarding classic ASP. He makes an excellent point, and I agree with him.
About four years ago, I remember telling my former employer about the epic superiority of ASP.NET over classic ASP. I could not deride classic ASP enough. Boy, was I a jerk!
Now, I don't want to return to classic ASP, but I have learned to appreciate it again. Just as Scott points out, you can have good code in classic ASP and bad code in ASP.NET (quite easily).
So, what's the point of saying this? I'm not going to starting working with classic ASP again, but the lesson for me is to be more thoughtful in forming my opinions about a technologies. We developers are quite punctilious and we consider our views are as sacrosanct. (I was vividly reminded of this at our Tallahassee Code Camp, as well as being dealt a crushing lesson in humility, but more on that later...)
