Benefits ASP.NET over CGI

For one thing , CGI is much slower than some of the other legacy technologies
(e.g., ASP). and much, much, much slower than current technologies (JSP,
Webspheres, ASP.NET).

Also, CGI is not very flexible. You are very limited with what you can do.

Development time will take, many, many, many times longer using this old
technology. Developing a CGI is, put very simply,. very time consuming. ASP,
JSP and Websphere takes up a much shorter time and ASP.NET takes up even less
time than JSP, Websphere and ASP.

Finally, ASP.NET uses the .NET Framework which means the managed code
paradigm, which means that you are always using safe code (you can bypass this
and use unmanaged code, if you want, but you rarely have to with .NET web
apps). So your apps are safe -- much safer than with older technologies, such
as ASP and, much, much, much safer than with technologes from the dawn of the
internet (i.e., CGI). Using the Framework also means access to over 3,500
classes, many third-party add-ins as well as the .NET Framework's built-in
accessibility to many data access methods and platforms (Oracle, DB2, MySQL,
SQL Server, Access, XML, MS-Office, etc. etc.) thanks to ADO,.NET. Did I
mention web services.

I could go on, but you get the idea.
