What’s the deal with all the different kinds of waterproof/breathable jacket fabrics?

What’s the deal with all the different kinds of waterproof/breathable jacket fabrics?

The big breathability issue is making buying a jacket confusing. eVent has thrown a cat ong the pigeons and waterproof soft shells also change my options. Is there any clear thinking on this subject? I have the new Aegis jacket and that's just a proprietary fabric but seems to work fine. In other words, what are the "real" facts and how do you choose the "best" jacket for various applications?
