As with everything, you can find opinion pieces on both sides, try
searching "why should I use bootsrap blog"...

The more important thing is where we want to go. For me, I want more
modern UI, edit fields in place instead of the forms patchwork has right
now, do ajaxy things and be usesable from my mobile phone so I can
quickly review things on the go. All that need a solid CSS component
base and plenty of javascript. Hence bootstrap.
