ASP and IIS are not freely downloadable
PHP and apache are.

I'd still argue for PHP - ASP.NET is restrictive in many different ways. If you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of both - PHP would come out a clear winner by a big margin. Moreover - as I said earlier, ASP(.NET) limits you to using ONLY Windows Platform and IIS Webserver. I don't think one has to mention - how buggy and unstable are both - so whatever advantages you might get in volume page handling, is all lost because of it's inherent instability. So there..
Lets have some more fors and againsts - and keep on your best behaviours.. no abusing from any quarters please

Biggest difference is, ASP will run only of IIS - which I find a pathetic webserver and limits you to code only on windows. On the other hand, php will run on both windows and *nix and in fully compatible with Apache. So there.

And finally, PHP doesn't support Web Services (up to now).
What exactly do you mean by web-services ? If it is XML-RPC, and SOAP or the WDDX (Web Distributed Data Exchange) - the precursor of SOAP - then PHP supports ALL of them presently. Also alongwith PHP use can use the PEAR and cURL libraries to achieve immense flexibility and perform any given web-service.
