    @Kryptos: Just my opinion, but yes. They will be around for a long time.

    Thanks. I've palyed around with ASP.NET in the pass. I program mainly has a hobby, there seems an opportunity to do more programming via the day job.  So I was looking at what I should be looking into. 

    Is MS still moving ASP.NET forward? Some people seem to think it's been abandoned ....

    As a general rule, using any MVC-style architecture will isolate you from change to some extent -- if they were to ditch ASP.NET for some some future technology, you'd still be able to use the models (and possibly parts of the views) with the new technologies. I like ASP.NET MVC (the little that I have used it), so I would favour it over plain ASP.NET.

    I doubt ASP.NET has been abandoned -- I expect it's development has slowed down partly because it has matured, and partly because MS are focusing on Win8 at the moment.  I wouldn't think MS would abandon their main web technology just yet.

    Or go straight to ASP .NET WebPages Razor. There are tons of sites using ASP.Net WebForm. So, if you want to go into ASP .NET world, you cannot skip that super old technology.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    @Kryptos:  There is also a new version of Web Forms in ASP.NET 4.5, so no, it's not dead, but more and more are going towards MVC.  It really depends on your project, because in some cases, Web Forms will make more sense (i.e. migrating from an older version, or updating/adding features).
