Should you choose Bootstrap or Foundation for your enterprise project?

To me, the answer is neither. The frameworks are great starting points, but as the project develops and requires more customization, the initial benefits of quick bootstrapping become negligible and even baggage. The worst part is that unused CSS and JS will hurt optimization.

There are libraries to strip out unused CSS but require regression testing.

I prefer a well-organized CSS framework such as SASS with breakpoints (not the library, but custom media queries and variables) with custom javascript as it will serve your project better in the long run.
