    What is the benefit of moving to Kendo from say asp.net ajax (non-mvc).  It seems the Ajax controls now have HTML5 charting elements and the other existing ajax controls provide "touch enabled"  capabilities for mobile devices with the .js resource files.  So what then is the benefit other than SOE and lighter weight controls as two big reasons (neither of which a big concern to my product)?

    Any glaring and big reasons one would make the switch?

    The only anwser I've found was from this thread and not sure if that's pretty much it and it truly stands still:
    http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/general-discussions/asp-net-ajax-versus-kendoui-clarification.aspx

    "This basically should be an architecture decision based on the target users of your application and the goals of it. If the idea for everything working on the client fits your needs, you can try Kendo. If you still prefer the server-side approach, you should continue with ASP.NET AJAX components. "

    Hello Erik,

    It is hard to say whether you should move to KendoUI or not. It is like choosing between 2 cars, fast one and fuel efficiently one(maybe the comparison is not quite right), it is up to you to decide what of the products to use.
    My personal suggestion is that if your team is more familiar with JavaScript and jQuery to choose Kendo and if you fans of C# and ASP... RadControls for AJAX, but sill I could be wrong about it.

    We are trying to support both suits at the same time and to provide all needed tools for both of them.
    Maybe the community has the word here to tell experience of using the controls what would be more suitable for what needs.
