Rumor, really? I don't think open source works like that. We're not
talking about an Apple product. :)
You may have heard about Apache::ASP (apache-asp.org). Once installed,
it allows Apache to work like IIS with classic ASP.
There is one key difference, however: it's based on Perl, rather than
VBScript. You will have to rewrite all your code to make use of it.
I wouldn't say that's the biggest problem with Apache::ASP, though.
Being forced to rewrite VBScript in Perl is more of a feature than a
problem, in my oh-so-humble opinion. :) The real problem with
Apache::ASP is that it's semi-abandonware. The web pages are still up,
the software still works, but it hasn't gotten a new feature in years,
and even bug fixes are few and far between.
