Dependency Injection Frameworks

Lately I've been taking a look at dependency injection, and I've spent a little bit of time examining Ninject. I've read most of the Ninject Documentation, and so far I'm very interested in it. I love that it doesn't depend on configuration files. The "modules" it uses look very interesting. Whenever possible I prefer to use strongly typed everything. I love the compiler and everything it can do for me. I also love intellisense, and not depending on config files helps me to use both of those.

I've heard a little bit about some other dependency injection frameworks including Windsor and StructureMap. Not really sure what people are using. I'm pretty well sold on Ninject for now, so if anyone has any opinions or information I need to consider please let me know. I would be glad to hear what other people are using and what their opinions are.

Dependency injection makes a lot of sense, but with a few different choices out there, it is hard to say which route someone should take. I also like the fact that ninject seems to be a lot lighter weight than some other frameworks. In general I prefer add-ins which have very small footprints. If there is one thing I can't stand it is code that dominates everything else.

Ninject is awesome. But it takes a bit of work to achieve total container ignorance with it. You can get there though.
