I've always said that you can never trust a single poll, survey, or judged result in isolation. Statistically, there are always "outlier" results, so you need to aggregate results from a variety of sources to create accurate assessments of anything subjective. That's why it's especially significant that Telerik has been recognized by not only the 2009 SD Times 100 Awards, but also the 2009 Visual Studio Magazine Readers' Choice Awards. Combine that with our strong showing the 2009 aspnetPro Readers' Choice Awards and the 2009 Code Project Members' Choice Awards, and it becomes clear that it is no fluke that Telerik is continually recognized as the best in industry awards. Our most recent awards are for similar recognitions: creating the best web and desktop components for .NET. Specifically, we are the winner in the "Component Suites for .NET - Desktop and Web" category in the 2009 Visual Studio Magazine Readers' Choice Awards (along with a handful of other "2nd place" awards) and we are recognized as one of the leading vendors in the SD Times 100 "Components and Libraries" category. Combine that with the recent "casual" survey that shows Telerik as the leading 3rd party Ajax suite for .NET, and you start to paint a picture of quality you can trust. Of course, as with any of our awards- Readers' Choice or not- we must thank you for our continued success! Your votes and your feedback help make us great and we focus on that everyday, renewing our commitment daily to make tools and components that make your developer lives simpler. Thanks for helping make the first half of 2009 a great year. We can't wait to make the second half (with your help) even better!
