I'm not really familiar enough with all of Turbine to give you the long
answser, but the short answer goes like this:

* Both frameworks are based on an MVC-style
  model of separating business logic from
  presentation logic.

* Struts really prefers that you use JSP as the
  presentation layer, while Turbine tends to like
  template languages, such as Webmacro, better.

* Turbine has lots of facilities that Struts does not
  currently have.  Some of these areas will get
  addressed before a 1.0 release.
