.Net vs. ActiveX+VBScript?

Hi,

Since we're checking out all the options we have to move from dedicated apps in VB to web applications... I was wondering if any of you had good experience with wrapping up apps in ActiveX objects, and possibly add VBScript coding, and could explain the pro's and con's (besides the obvious MS-only solution and the security risks)? Why should we bother with .Net or its equivalents?

Thanks much for any feedback :-)
