“But It's Free!” Hot article by Ben Forta on ColdFusion… he has discussed this so often that you get the pure, distilled essence of his replies to “What is ColdFusion anyway?” and “But something else is free!” His point in there about CFQUERY is the archetypal example of differences in the total costs of development. Summary:“So, why buy ColdFusion when ASP (or JSP or PHP or Perl or…) is free? Well, if they were indeed free that would be a very good question.” [JD on MX]
