open source implementations (i.e. Mono or Portable.NET, IMHO Mono is much 

Note ASP.NET is not as Windows centric as SWF so the cant take advantage of 
Linux specific functionality thing is less true for ASP.NET than for SWF. I 
think that ASP.NET is platform independent enough. But you can enhance 
ASP.NET using Mono specific assemblies like Mono.Http or Mono.WebServer that 
are platform independent so can be used on MS.NET as well.
