COLD FUSION or ASP.neT?

What would be the better to learn? ASP.net or Cold fusion. Im a web designer, and will be designing intranets and web based apps. I little guidance would help. I would prefer the easier one to learn.

I kind of figured that. I went to Barnes and Noble and read about 80 pages of the book. It seems that its Markup Language was easier and it explained it in details from dirt. Thanks..
any other comments would be appreciated. O I know that the forums for CF dont get answered as fast as ASP.net . Are there any other good forums for CF?

If you are after a decent job, or even a 70% or so better chance of getting one, go ASP (or .NET) - CF isn't used by a great deal of companies, compared to the MS alternative.

Hey Micro Soft rep,
It's ColdFusion.

Yes, there are probably 70% more jobs for ASP developers, it takes 100% more code to write it.

It's ironic, I avoid Basic patched over to the web, aka ASP pages, like the plague, but today I have to fix an Australian site that was written in ASP. I look forward to using the DIM code.

To correct your thoughts on how many companies use it, go to forta.com and look at the list of thousands. You might want to start at URL the "The Technical Handbook for the SQL Server and .NET Community".

General advise on learning a language: if you are already a Visual Basic coder and are lazy or if you are forced to use ASP, learn ASP. If you are not sitting there, killing time in a cubicle and need to learn something in a timely manner and be productive, go with ColdFusion.

err - Ok. If I'm a Microsoft rep, (which by the way I have no idea how you came to that conclusion, I didn't say anything pro MS), what does that make you, with a whole site devoted to CF.... sheesh. Get real.

Secondly, I was just giving the poster some real word facts. Looking through the jobs ads, ASP position's outnumber CF by approximately 10 to 1. If I was looking to get a job, I know what language I'd be learning. It's totally up to the poster though. Any monkey can go a CF-centric website and pull up stats, hell, I might just go over to microsoft.com now and do a search on CF, see what BS I can dig up...
