How does it compare to using other libraries like YUI or prototype?

Is it flexible for creating highly customized user interactions? Do you use it for these things?

What does it do best?

What are it's drawbacks and what is hard to do in GWT that should be easy in other libraries?

I thought it was an interesting exercise, but not something I'd actually use.

I don't care much for tools that generate a ton of code for me so I've stayed clear of it. But I have no real experience with it so it could be the greatest thing since sliced bread. Alas, I'll never know.

Guys, I'm looking for people who have actually used GWT for projects. Particulary interested in hearing from guys who can compare it to the other libraries.

Thanks,

Garrett

Have. Though a small one. Opinion remains.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
