Next Month: Reader's Choice Favorites Reviewed

We've lined up two products for review next month, both of which earned top honors in our 2010 VSM Reader's Choice Awards in November. We'll be looking at Infragistics' NetAdvantage for .NET: Win Client and Developer Express' DXperience Universal component suites.

I often think that I'm not paying enough attention to the Windows Client environment so reviewing the Infragistics package (the top ranked product in the "Component Suite: Desktop" category) will help to address that imbalance. But, being primarily a Web developer, our other review will be DevExpress' DXperience Universal, the winner in our "Component Suite: Web" category.

It says something about how a handful of companies dominate these component categories (and have captured developers "hearts and minds"). While Infragistics took home the honors on the desktop, Developer Express was close behind as our readers' number two choice. In the Web suite category, meanwhile, Developer Express and Infragistics finished in a dead heat for the top spot. In both categories, Telerik took the third spot.
