I thought this article was interesting. I thought it was obvious as to why ASP.NET MVC was the better choice just because ASP.NET Web Forms was released about oh, a decade ago in 2002. However, it’s been a while since ASP.NET MVC has been released in 2007-2008 as well. Still, if developers are content with using Web Forms, there is no real reason to switch, as it will save them money, which is ASP.NET MVC’s biggest disadvantage, as the author suggests. Though, I don’t really see it as a disadvantage if you are getting your money’s worth, with all the improvements and advantages MVC has. It really just depends on the developer. Like the saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” People had switched to MVC because they were unhappy with Web Forms, but if some are fine with it, then they should keep using it.
