Cold Fusion will run on windows and Linux but most hosters won't run it on 
anything besides NT/2000 and NT/2000 hosting solutions almost always are 
priced higher when CF is included.  PHP will run on almost anything but 
hosters typically provide it only with the 'nix crowd.

If ASP will run on windows, AIX, Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX then how come it 
won't run on Mac?
