This afternoon, while I was installing for the 4th time this year the Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2005, I printed the first post by ScottGu about the new ASP.NET MVC framework.

It's a long article (28 printed pages excluding comments) that details quite well the process behind the development of a simple website using all the default behaviors of the framework.

I just want to highlight a sentence I really liked:

You can use any unit testing framework (including NUnit, MBUnit, MSTest, XUnit, and others) with the ASP.NET MVC Framework.

We'll also be shipping project template downloads for NUnit, MBUnit and other unit test frameworks as well, so if you prefer to use those instead you'll also have an easy one click way to create your application and have a test project immediately ready to use with it.

I really like this opening to the opensource world by Microsoft. Does this have something to do with Phil and ScottHa both working on this product?

Now I'm looking forward to download the CTP.
