The change from Struts 1.x to Struts 2.x is likely to be rather 
dramatic, and many people may be more ready to use Struts 1.3, which 
should be essentially backwards compatible with Struts 1.2 and 
earlier apps than they are to learn a substantially new development 

Others will never bother to touch Struts 1.3 and will have already 
started using WebWork.  There is a broad spectrum of users out there.
