Hi I'm paying to have a website built and the firm that I am using has offered me a choice between php/MySQL and ASP/SQLserver. Now they want extra money and a extra week to code the project in ASP/SQLserver but they suggest that this will have a dramatic improvement speed over php, since they can use stored procedures and so on..
The thing is I don't know much about his, the website should have quite a heavy amount of traffic so I am slightly worried, by they do seem to try and get money out of me for every little thing, so I wanted to get some one who knows about it's advice. Would Php be a lot slower, I've always been a fan of Linux rather than Microsoft.
Any advice greatly recieved
