The results of the survey are very positive!
- PostSharp is used by professionals in companies of all sizes, all over the world. Even very big ones!
- PostSharp is used in production software by at least 30% of users. I think it is more, since survey invitations were skewed in favor of recent users (because users were not required to register before the beginning of January).
- 98% of users consider that using PostSharp results in fewer lines of code and code of higher quality.
- 90% of users consider that PostSharp is stable
Maybe the worse score is community visibility: only 61% of respondents considered that the project is well visible... to which I want to answer: go on, blog about it, talk about it in your UG, invite me if you can! The web site gets 86% of satisfaction with some negative remarks, mainly due to the problems we got with the recent launch of the new Joomla+phpbb system.
Another point requiring improvements is documentation: 77% consider that PostSharp is well documented, but 84% wishes better documentation. The most important feature for next versions is better run-time performance and library of ready-to-use aspects.
And finally, 70% of respondents declare themselves likely to buy a commercial version. Encouraging - although there can be of course a distance between intentions and acts!
But better read yourself:
