Like many authors at O'Reilly, I'm a big supporter of additions to the free software arena. I'm very excited about OpenASP. Currently, however, this is a very immature product in terms of support for ASP. Table 3.3 (from the readme.txt file from OpenASP for Apache) reports the level of support for various ASP features.
