    Which should I use, .Net, PHP or Python?

    I'm in the process of planning a system for managing clients of my future software sales and one of the aspects of it is the choice of platform to develop this system on.

    The software that will be contacting the system is written in various guises of .Net (C# Winforms, Silverlight etc...).

    So, my choices are as follows:

    1. LAMP
    2. Windows, IIS, .Net and MSSQL
    3. LAM+Python

    Any variation of the above.

    Thoughts?

    I'd stick with .net. Maybe use WCF (Windows Communication Foundation) in .net for the web services

    Yeah, the applications use WCF for internal communication already, so I'm familiar with it (and its simplicity).

    Sounds like a CRM system. Writing your own might not be a great idea - probably best stick to your business, and get a CRM from somewhere else? sugarcrm is ok, and they have a free version.

    Nah, not a CRM - more a software update and licensing system, with a bit of customer management tie in to my existing Sugar CRM system. Very much core to the business.

    If it ties with sugar, then PHP?

    Our licencing system here is pure perl, and it does work, though we find irritating crossovers between it and other systems.

    If you want to give me a call, i'd be happy to share my experiences of such systems (I wrote a good bit of our current licencing system, and many of its flaws can be directly attributed to my naivety at the time)
