comment When to favor ASP.NET WebForms over MVC
@Dementic Usually for a simple MVC app one builds models, then scaffolds controllers and views and/or generates scaffolded controllers/views. Nothing really time-consuming there.

But if the requirements amount to "I need an app with two roles, one to record some information, the other to look at it, and I don't really care what it looks like." Then, yes, that's quite doable.

comment When to favor ASP.NET WebForms over MVC
@JimG - Uhh, anything which involves a person entering records without interesting associations into a database, and having that person or someone else read/print them at some other point can be basically scaffolded using an MVC framework. Granted, that isn't most apps, but it's a heck of a lot more than you can do with Forms. I guess your -1 proves my point.

Supposing you have a badly designed object (For instance, one which doesn't appropriately implement IDisposable in C#) that isn't always a viable option.
