(that's why TDD is so much needed in MVC; in web forms we don't have to test if gridview or validators have bugs, they are written for us by the good fellows in Microsoft; they are debugged and componentized for us to use for free. Now, I have to do all of that on top of the business logic programming; I guess I need to ask for a big pay-raise :)
Is this correct? No controls? No GridView? Is this temporary till the final release is out, or by design and permanent? FUD?
