Hi

Just wanting to know different opinions purely on an architectural perspective, we are going to be designing/re-writing a new system that is written in classic asp and wanted to know what is the best .net application to use and how to structure it?

In the past we have had classic asp 2 layer system and an asp.net 2 layer system and an OOB silverlight 4 n-tier system (which doesnt handle large amounts of data very well when passing back to WCF), so trying to find what is best and most popular and an example of how its actually structured together if possible.

Would also anyone know if using silverlight with EF and LINQ would be a good option.

Thanks

My opinion is that Microsoft has shown the writing on the wall for Silverlight and avoiding it would be wise. If you need to do videos, the future is HTML5, Javascript and CSS3.  Silverlight will not survive.  My preference for data if a real backend server is available has always been to setup stored procedures, do the processing on that high end db server and use the front end as just that a simple data display mechanism.  I have done some ASP.NET and it was powerful.  You might also consider Linux/Apache backend server (usually a lot cheaper), with MySQL, PostGre, or Pervassive and PHP as well.  It really depends upon how complex your pages as to which way I'd go.  However, standards should almost always trump the latest fad.  Microsoft put out Silverlight as a challenge to Flash. Most net admins hate Flash. People hate having to install it or anything else for that matter and keep it up to date.  Having it built in, in HTML5 would be a lot better.  Also consider jQuery (very powerful).
