Hi guys,

Just my $.02

I agree with the idea of having another implementation besides asp.net.

One presentation framework I'd like to see ported to .Net would be the 
Echo Framework. http://echo.sf.net.

It is very nice and allows you to use the same idea of application 
instance you are used to in desktop instead of using a page centric 
approach. I think it has this idea more tight than asp.net design.

I know it is in Java, but IMHO, it would be a worthwhile port.
