Project Idea: Create our own productional quality web server for .net

Oct 19, 2006 at 3:50 AM
It sounds a bit crazy but I do really hope to do so. Currently the hosting cost for running ASP.NET is expensive comparing to LAMP solution. Now we have free DB, free developer tools, except 'A'- in order to run a productional web server the only choice in Windows is IIS 6.0, which means another couple thousands dollars. If we can create a web server independent of OS, we can run a web server as cheap as $0, provided that we got windows 2000 pro/xp home.

have a look at this:

Quite a few people have extended the project in different ways.
Here's some examples:

And then there's the mono project's implementation of ASP.NET as well, which may be good enough for you
