I am thrilled with ASP.NET MVC. Why? Because it ditches almost all of the horrible .NET crapola. For the most part, those screwy server controls are gone. The ViewState idea, out the window. Code-behind files and APP_CODE are also in the past. .NET MVC is an MVC framework and works like the rest of the internet. This is a very good thing.

It's actually been a little harder to move forward with it because of this. With the old stuff, there were a ton of things that I couldn't figure out that provided questions to be answered, problems to be understood, etc. With MVC, it all looks like any other MVC framework. After having put some code in each part of the system to see it work, there's not too much. Of course, there are always a few things to do. It will be interesting to find out what's new to learn.
