EPiServer CM5 R3 - Why two programming models?

Out of curiosity I'm wondering why EPiServer is choosing to implement two programming models for R3, MVC and WebForms.... Any comments?

    We see the MVC programming model as strong candidate and it's helping us in creating more usable interfaces in the product.

    Still, we invest a lot of effort in maintaining compatibility for existing functionality and I'm venturing a guess that the web forms programming model will stick around for a long time to come.

    So what you are saying is that you will be going forward supporting both MVC and Webforms?? Is this for both site center and "template" development?

    The next release will be called EPiServer CMS 6, available early next year. Our new administrative interfaces will be based on MVC, templates and existing UI will be based on WebForms. Since there is a lot of interest in MVC for template development we will look into that as well in coming versions, but will we not adandon WebForms.

    EPiServer CMS5 R3 has been upgraded to EPiServer CMS 6. Currently it is in CTP2 (Community tech preview), but afaik the finale release should be Q1 next year.
