It’s an analyst’s report and not a ColdFusion marketing piece. It’s honest, it’s independent, and it’s not there to fluff up ColdFusion. Therefore it has both pros and cons in it. However, I think it’s much more positive than negative.
It also makes me wonder, if Gartner thinks this after seeing ColdFusion 8, what are they going to say after we release ColdFusion 9?
