#1: ASP lifetime

Posted on 2008-01-21 15:18:01 by Rost

hi,

Any indications concerning when ASP support and tech is stopped from MS?

When is it e.g. not possible to compile/run code from a newer IIS version?

thx

I have no clue, but it is still present in Windows Server 2008, which means
it is not going anywhere anytime soon. You have at least three or four years
until a post 2008 version of windows, following the normal development cycle
for windows OS. This will put the earliest retirement at around 2011. As ASP
is, for all practical purposes, a layer added on top of IIS, it only
consumes cycles when you are running classic ASP, so I do not see a reason
for MS to dump it, even if they no longer actively develop improvements to
it.

So no burning platform for existing asp solutions on that front, I conclude.

Or December 21, 2012 - The End of the World, according to the Mayans.

Will the world end on 2012?

Do you think MS will release some Windows atomic edition?

As long as they have Enterprise customers still using ASP, I doubt they will
create a situation where they will not upgrade that makes it impossible to
upgrade. If 99% of their big customers bail and go the .NET route, you might
see some forced obsolescence.

Well, I'm ending things that have moveable dates to 2012, just in case.
An example is Easter, and I'm not about to do calculations to determine
Easter's date in ASP - in PHP it's just date("M-d-Y", easter_date
(YYYY)).
