QuestionWhat's so bad about webforms? Pin

I've been developing in ASP.Net for over 12 years and, though it was a bit of a learning curve to start, feel the webforms environment is, for most purposes, pretty good. When MVC came on the scene (first via 3rd parties such as Castle's, then through MS's own offering) everyone pretty much jumped ship declaring it the best thing since sliced bread. As I had a commitment to supporting a number of webforms applications, I didn't initially have any need to switch; and subsequently haven't found any compelling reason to do so. I've looked (briefly, admittedly) at MVC but felt it was a steep learning curve and didn't seem to offer any advantages, and have some actual disadvantages, to what I was used to.

I answered a question in Q+A today where I mentioned Webforms, and the need to decide whether to go webforms or MVC, and a subsequent comment was "I will not recommend webforms".

So I'm curious: what is it about MVC that makes it so much better than webforms? Is it simply that it's flavour of the month and commercial requirements for webforms developers has crashed? (plug: I have a requirement for a webforms maintenance developer ... message me for more details)

Is it that MVC is a lot "better", or do people feel webforms is actively "bad"?

My applications, using webforms, successfully separate business functionality from presentation issues (and indeed database/storage access from business objects). They implement multi-level inheritance, use custom controls to implement standard functionality, incorporate AJAX-based interactive features (not using Microsoft AJAX controls); and have proven to be flexible and extensible. Not yet found anything I can't do with Webforms.
