For me why it beats the rest:
- You can write your own forms / form code
- Ability to generate to multiple files
- No need to use XML (Xpath) / XSL
- Very fast support on forums
- Good quality of the community ( and templates )
- Very active development
- Commandline support with XML input files ( means you can automate it all )
- VS.Net integration in the form of select the template hit generate and done.
- Startup speed going to slower databases ( either large access databases / overseas sql server )
- Intelliscence in Object Model

Now I can totally remove VNC.
I can only say one word ... ARGH !!!
