php is completely free, and people use asp because it's based around microsoft.

for the rest of the conversation, try replacing "php" with "Linux" and "asp" with "Windows"

ASP may still be used for those companies that yet want to move to php. Some companies are not yet sure about open source so they choose to use microsoft and it's products.
