Karl's comparaison on Symfony vs. Zend

Karl Katzke talks in his blog about the difference between symfony and zend framework and why he prefers one over the other.


Symfony has a lot of ‘buzz’ and user support, and there are excellent guides from both the authors and the communities to get users started on the learning curve. Zend doesn’t have as much, and the documentation is really directed at more experienced developers who are old hands with the more complex aspects of object-orientation.

I personally prefer Symfony, what do you prefer?
