OK: [ Openlayers + ExtJS = GeoExt]
I am new to webmapping and still shopping around. I bumped into a Case Study with a gentle learning curve, matches my needs and it uses OpenGeoSuite. I got to learn of GeoExplorer and I found it to be a neat interface as I intend to serve geodata to gis novices-- some eye candy would be necessary.
I however have issues with the feel of the 'Identify' pop-up box.
My questions: Is it wise to adopt this 'interface'?
(i) does it have a future - future releases/development (need 2nd opinion after reading http://opengeo.org/technology/geoext/ )
(ii) easy of customisation -- little programming/ scripting experience [ remember 'Identify']
(iii) shall I instead focus on mastering OpenLayers as it is?
