Let's put it this way, they're both easier to learn than Perl. I personally found PHP really easy to pick up. My previous training had been in Java, C and a bit of Perl (which I forgot as quickly as I could). The reason I picked up PHP in the first place was because I was developing a system for a non-profit organization that couldn't spend the money on proprietary systems like asp or .NET.
PHP is a great language. When i first started with it, I used it as a scripting language, just like with Perl, and correct me if I'm wrong, but i think asp is scripted too. But now that I've played with it, and work with PHP every day, I'm starting to use the more powerful object-oriented PHP. The fact that PHP has such growing room is amazing. The learning curve for PHP isn't bad at all, and it has a ton of features and power.
Ok, that's enough of that.
NOW... asp... personally, I hate it. It seems to be a mishmash of MS trying to copy every other scripting language out there and putting them together in an incohesive way. Some people love it, tho, and I know you're one of them Kusadasi, so don't flame me please.
.Net is a whole different beast. IMHO, MS did a great job implementing a MVC (Model View Controller) paradigm when developing it, which allows for much better systems, especially when working with C#. I haven't had any personal experience with creating enterprise level systems with .NET and c#, but everyone I've spoken to says that it's great... even those who have used PHP/old asp/Perl.
If you're already an MS guy (which I think you are), then why not learn .NET? I don't know where abouts you live, but in Vancouver (where I am) it's really a MS area. I've got several friends that have switched their entire firms from PHP to .NET.
One thing you don't want to forget though, is Jakarta Struts. Stuts is awesome, and just starting to come into its own.

Agreed... PHP is bad ass (no need to reiterate what was already said). :)

I struggled with perl for a long time, and php is quite a bit easier after that experience, but you can't beat perl for doing magic tricks on files (reg-ex). php is much easier to just pepper functionality inside your markup. I think php must be derived from perl tho.
