[Mono-list] Cassini web server

It was my pleasure. Like yourself I was curious. I had
first tried out ASP.NET with Cassini in the MS.NET
env. At the time XSP, though functional, was not as
advanced as it is now.

A few observations about my test:
 - memory consumption seemed high. (~15M no activity,
> 30M after loading a web service)
 - not having the Windows Forms component was more in
the spirit of Linux/UNIX apps, and would make it more
 - I used a .config file to store the apps settings.
This increases the memory consumption a suprising
ammount. Dont have the numbers in front of me now.

This does not qualify as a benchmark, as I have not
carfullly measured or compared XSP vs Cassini. Would
be interesting to see the performance and mem
consumption comparisons for the different ASP.NET
deployment possibilities. Has anyone tried this?

last time I had checked, I dont think mon_mono worked
on Windows. Anyone tried it?
