    When I was starting out in WM/Razor (only a couple of months ago!) I watched this video and it was very helpful in explaining the differences and the pros and cons... It may help you out with your first question: http://www.asp.net/web-forms/videos/how-do-i/choosing-the-right-programming-model

    I'm doing a big Webmatrix Razor site at the moment- but it's my first real website so I have nothing compare it to- other than I tried to get my head around the LAMP stack a few years ago and failed miserably. This WebMatrix is easy and brilliant :)

    It should make no difference to your client unless they want to take your source code and extend it themselves - and they only know Web Forms.

    You can check with BuiltWith.com for stats on what technologies are being used. Bear in mind that Web Forms is 10 years old, so the vast majority of ASP.NET sites are Web Forms sites.

    The Web forms on one hand uses ASP.NET controls to make the validations more effective, I have not yet used it because I prefer using Web Pages, as it used basic HTML clause (elements) and simple ASP.NET validations, is more like it!

    No stats, because no ones shares what he is upto! However, I am building my web app using Web Pages! And so are many others.
