Gee, and I thought that since I was running a site open to all tools 
that I should keep it balanced. Silly me.

If I gave my real opinion, I guarantee it wouldn't agree with you, or 
most on this list. That site isn't the "Joe's favorite interface site". 
It points to all of the resources, and tries to give some brief 
information from which some decisions can be gleaned. That's what it's 
for. There's enough statements in the getting started document to allow 
someone to make an educated guess at what they might like best. At some 
point, people do have to read documentation to get started... as Gerben 
said earlier.

Oh, and Jack said 4.0, so is he really wrong, or just presenting a more 
accurate answer?
