Zend

"But Zend Framework also provides an advanced Model-View-Controller (MVC) implementation that can be used to establish a basic structure for your Zend Framework applications" - http://framework.zend.com/manual/en/learning.quickstart.intro.html

What a load of shit. Models are barely more than wrappers for database tables. Which would be okay except they have no connection to the view. And there's no easy way of having a model render out differently with different views. Zend Framework is shit and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone

Update: For future reference Zend and most so called MVC web frameworks are actually Model 2. Zend is a pretty poor job of it but at least that puts it into the right category
