Please, we need an official answer regarding Janus company state. Will they return with a new version for Windows application or do we need to go to other products?

Excellent product. I've been using it since late 90s. But... WARNING!!!! Janus seems to be closing down!! Look at the Janus forum:

Any official answer for some months ago... Really it's a pity!

Really good suite. I love the look of their controls, it resembles microsoft's look and feel far more closely than other suites. The suite unfortunately isn't as large as some others (missing a reporting and charting component for example). I've looked at other suites but Janus is the suite I went with. Support is really good. Prompt responses and they know what they're talking about. The product is updated with fixes quite often. You find a bug, they'll usually have it fixed in the next release (in about one or two weeks). I only wish they would add more products to their suite.

Best Tech Support in the business... If you got a problem, or don't understand something, these guys literally answer your question in minutes.. using actual code examples ... with actual programmers providing the support (very smart and creative programmers). Not to mention the controls have cutting edge look and fast. If you find a bug they fix it.. that day or the next build. First class company.. that really saves you when you're stuck, they give true suggestions and above and beyond tech support. You won't be disappointed with them.

Janus Suite is very powerful and complete, in particular the grid that is the best product of this kind that I have found in the market. It could be improved from a graphical point of view, however it is very professional and reliable. I use them in all my projects and always obtain fantastic results.

I just finished reviewing Janus and some other tool suites. In the end I personally preferred the Janus suite although it is a bit smaller than some of the others. In particular, the two areas that I evaluated the most were the grid components and the toolbar components. UI Toolbars/Explorer Bars and Styles I found the UI pieces of Janus including toolbars, visual styles etc. to be a lot simpler to use. I found the designers felt a lot more comfortable overall and were just very clean. Grids Regarding grids, I like the Janus grid designer a lot better than some of the other wizard style setup and designers. Again, as with the toolbar designers, the Janus designer seems to be very clean. Some other grids have a bulky wizard style setup which as a coder I am just not a big fan of and found it a little overwhelming when learning the control. Other grids may be very good but you just seem to scroll through what seems like thousands of properties trying to find something you need. Thirdly, upon installation, Janus did not seem to pollute my toolbox with about 300 tools that I will never use. It provided me with all of the tools that I need and a few extra and I liked the cleanliness of it a lot better. The one downside that I can say about Janus is that their help manual is very very bad. However, if you post a question in the forums on their site it will be answered immediately and I also highly recommend going through the tutorials which are included in the Janus installation folder. You can learn a lot from them. So thats my pick.

Excellent User Interface design and Grid components. Among the best available on the market. I recommend them to our customers.

Elegant User Interface however there is little sample code, impossible to understand how to use the product. Little examples of how to use the functions of the product as the samples seem to refer to the Wizard or how to automatcally generate code. Online help is not very intuitive.
