I haven't used any of the dotnet stuff, but the small bits I've seen
have indicated it's not very different in philosophy from the
ASP/PHP/CGI/etc way of doing things. I'm not sure there's really a
"curve" for learning woven; for me, after a few years of dealing with
the prevailing models of webpage generation, Woven came as a breath of
fresh air: it's the only web framework I've used that I haven't come
to hate. However, as glyph pointed out recently, you have to
"reconfigure the sub-atomic particles in your brain to completely
disassociate the concepts of 'web' and 'application'." Some people
will be ready to do this, some won't. Once you've made the mental leap
to treating webpage generation as structure-based and not
string-based, you're most of the way there.
