Personally, I started with MTB and in my early TYPO3 efforts found it  
easier to grasp and get started with. I was satisfied using it and  
still think it is a solid way to template a site.

However, earlier this year, I have began using TV and see no reason  
to ever go back. Its basics are not too hard to grasp and once you  
understand it in depth it gives you so much flexibility and power  
particularly through the FCE's and the local processing field.

If you are already successfully templating sites in TV, then I would  
question why even consider changing. Is there any kind of advantage  
you think it might give you?
