Asp.net vs LAMP – Case of Digg and StackOverflow Sites

ScottGu retweeted an interesting post today about Digg and StackOverflow

Nice RT @spolsky Digg: 200MM page views, 500 servers. Stack Overflow: 60MM page views, 5 servers. What am I missing?

then goes on to retweet the reason too

RT @spolsky (nb Stack Overflow is ASP.NET MVC + SQL Server, Digg was LAMP)

now that is very bold to claim isnt it..? Is PHP on Linux that bad in terms of performance..? I did some search and it seems the claim might be indeed valid at least as per the below link

I will try to post some ASP.net MVC related stuff in coming weeks.


.net posts vs Sharepoint posts

Lately, my posts to this blog have been mostly on Sharepoint. Though thats not the intention of creating this site, somehow my posts have been more biased towards Sharepoint. I have to admit that since I started posting on Sharepoint this blog’s hit rate has skyrocketed. Though thats encouraging, its not the vision with which I created this blog. I am planning to give Sharepoint posts some rest and start posting on general .net technologies covering clr to c# and wpf to ASP.net.
