No, don't use Backbone :P
There are better alternatives like angular and ember :)

Backbone has it's uses... it's mainly great for integrating with an existing codebase or for times when you need to control/customize how everything works.

Once Meteor matures a bit it looks like it'll blow all three out of the water for fresh codebases!

That is unfortunate :| Good save... i really will have to update all the domains. It's kind of a pain because they're mixed in with repos

This is a pretty nice comprehensive read... it even covers the recent additions for #stopListening and #listenTo to help nerf cleanup.
