 From a practical point of view, it's only available for Windows. The 
Mono project is an open source attempt to replicate ASP.NET (and C# and 
a whole bunch of other .NET innovations) but it's still far too early to 
say if it's going to be succesful or if Microsoft are going to crush it 
with a few of their patents once it starts working properly.
