Productivity Award: Telerik DevCraft Ultimate
I looked at Telerik for the first time three years ago. I had some minor difficulty then with a couple of the products and the documentation was not as clear as it needed to be. I am pleased that those dips have been filled in this version. Still, I would love some UML diagrams of the product architecture which is an important need given how much functionality is included. My biggest gripe is that Telerik has adopted a model that product installation can be done only over the Internet under their program control. I really want to download the install files and be able to install and configure them on my time, even offline. But this is a gripe I can live with given the richness that DevCraft Ultimate offers.
