re: Writing new code is ALWAYS slower than not writing it. How many people knows Spring? How many people knows your solution? Only you? Ten? If you...

Not if the code you are re-using is not fit for purpose.

Or if it forces you down roads that are not necessary.

Plus almost every framework that has any kind of popularity has books, books written about them. Does that not tell you there is a big cost to using them, at least in terms of understanding them.

True, but at the same time programming languages have books written about them, entire encyclopedias of books for just language semantics. The comparison does not seem entirely on point. Just so you know, I don't necessarily disagree with any of your previous points on the matter at hand.

I guess my point is more the supposed ease of picking up a framework with zero cost is false; some evidence being the huge amount of literature available for them

No one would argue picking up a new programming language is zero cost (there's books for them as you point out) and yet people think they can get tons of functionality for zero cost by using frameworks.
