UPDATE (2006-May-18): I am no longer running Xtras.Net
As many of you know, my company produces a printed catalog called Xtras.Net which we subtitle Your Source for Quality .NET Tools. However, we are revising the design for the next printing, and also adding features to our website to coordinate with some of the changes.
For example, we’d like to include icons for 100% managed code vs.Managed Code calling unmanaged DLLs vs. a wrapped ActiveX. Another might be to denote if royalties are required. Yet another would be WinForms vs. WebForms vs. Windows Services vs. IDE add-ins.
For the general case, are those sufficient? Are there other things you’d like to see when consider a component purchase?
