When you compare it with for example the Enterprise Service management it's so slim and lightweight. And the scaling up to SQL 2005 Transactions when need is a feature that will be nice when that kick in.
My favorite among them all, though, is the TransactionScope, which makes a nice and easy visual way of showing what is part of the transaction and not.
However, i found out a small glitch yesterday. Appearently there is a configuration value (maxTimeout) hidden away in the machine.config-file on each computer. This value defaults to ten minutes and that value overrides any values found in other configs (web.config or app.config).
So - if you need long running transaction you will have to tweak that value. See this articles for more information.
But ... i still love it!
