It'd be funny if it wasn't so frustrating!

Copy that.... Its all unnecessary fluff. I think a friend of mine said it the best: "ASP.NET is Microsoft Frontpage Enterprise Edition". Although, its not so much Rails, its the framework. The MVC pattern works so well for the web it drives me nuts to think that I didnt a. Know about it, b. Care, c. Have the drive to learn anything new before 6-8 months ago. I've used MonoRail before, but it was much less mature than Ruby on Rails at the time. For me, ASP.NET and its DataGrids, Typed Datasets, and all the other other funky, overcomplicated garbage turns me off, as that stuff has no place in a web developers toolkit. Were people really begging to not have to write table tags anymore? Is the DataGrid the much needed band-aid to <table><tr><td>....</td></table></table>? Drag-and-Drop IDE's kill skill and promote mayhem. Go ahead, drag that datasource to that datagrid, it wont hurt...
