I started developing websites using PHP. I have read many times that PHP is free and open source which is an advantage over ASP.net.
However, due to my current job requirements, I had to switch to ASP.net which is pretty good. Now after developing few applications, I am wondering how can I publish them for free. As PHP is free and opensource, it was never an issue for me.
What's bothering me is this.
Suppose I developed a web application using Visual Studio Express (or Professional version or any other version)
- Do I need any special permission/license from Microsoft to host my application on Internet
If I create a desktop application and want to distribute it for free on internet, is any license required.
If no, then what are microsoft licenses all about and how is PHP free and ASP is not free
