If you're into C# and OOP (and TDD), you should be hating WebForms with passion.
WebMatrix is mainly geared towards ASP.NET Web Pages (so, webforms, mvc and webpages will be the three options for asp.net development). Webpages is mainly targetting beginners in ASP.NET - mainly those coming from a php background. It's not intended for
the hard core crowd. While it will definitely get polish and will be pretty sleek, it's intention is to take non-asp.net developers into asp.net - even more so to ASP.NET MVC.
As for the development experience, IIS express and SQL CE 4.0 support will be added to VS too. Of course, that doesn't mean WebMatrix is a temp offering. It will play an important role into accessing asp.net for the non-oriented and is likely to stay for
the short to mid term (if not distant) future.
