Steve, many thanks for the insights you give from someone who's worked on non-trivial applications in both technologies. Your comments confirm what I'd suspected. I work with lots of smaller clients - in most cases completely non-technical - and though I make it clear in my proposals I'll be using WebForms technology, this has never been an issue and the customers are happy with the end result.

One area I might slightly disagree is in your comments about Javascript. The reality is that if you need to create a website-based solution that loads without requiring additional support software on the client machine, there's not a lot of options if you need a functionally rich application. Despite all the many detractors from Javascript itself on this site and elsewhere, the biggest problem I've encountered is the scores of bolt-on "frameworks" each claiming to fill in the gaps in "easy" functionality from raw Javascript. A lot of these are bloated, inefficient, bug-ridden, and poorly documented. Even a good developer can struggle to build a decent site using (where I agree with you) low quality tools. Sadly there are too many "developers" who are not good, and the good ones get tainted with the perception that web developers can't deliver a decent product.

My feeling is that the rush of new frameworks and languages has slowed down a little in the past couple of years. Some technologies are beginning to mature and recognition is spreading that the way we approached development a few years ago (just grab components off the freeware shelf, together with whatever framework dependencies they dragged with them, and throw it all together) won't cut the mustard.
