Microsoft just announced  a new lightweight web development IDE call WebMatrix. It is a good news for web developer who started to develop website or web application using ASP.Net. It includes IIS Developer Express (a development Web server), ASP.NET (a Web framework), and SQL Server Compact (an embedded database). The feature that most interested me is the ability to start developing from popular open source application such as Joomla, WordPress or Drupal. Microsoft also enable developer to install PHP in Windows and IIS through an easy installer call Web Platform Installer (Web PI). However, it seems MS is trying to promote its own SQL Server instead of using MySQL or other database system. For me, I already decided to switch my OS and development to Linux and using all open source tools. It is left to you to decide.

    Hi Sam,
    I don’t think it is possible up to date.
    If you want to develop ASP.NET application in Linux, you can try using Mono.
    You have 3 choices: Using Apache with mod_mono, FastCGI using Nginx or using XSP web server.
    Check http://www.mono-project.com/ASP.NET
