My personal choice is jQuery, I have not used mootools before but I would recommend jQuery to any new js user. Its real easy to learn and there is a plugin for almost anything you need to do. I would avoid prototype/scriptulous as well as any others.
Exactly!! I am grinding everything out right now so that when I pick a framework, I won't get totally lost. In one of the books I read about a month ago on OO, the author mentioned that a lot of people don't truly understand the fundamentals of OO, and that's why they get lost when projects become bigger and more complex.
I've been coding PHP since it was PHP 3.0 and when it was called Pretty Home Page...LOL...
But never really sat down to grasp how everything works fundamentally. Same with JS......
I don't have a problem learning both mootools and jquery, but I would probably stop at 2 frameworks....
When I am ready for a JS framework, you'll definitely hear from me....
