My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
various websites for about a year and am anxious about switching
to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
