Ajax.NET or the Atlas Framework?

I found a lot of blogs and articles [1] that are asking if we should use the Ajax.NET library or the Atlas Framework. My opinion is that it is not easy to compare these two AJAX ideas. Ajax.NET was only a idea to have a data access for JavaScript with nearly the same objects as method argument or results like we are using on the server-side. There are some other companies with nice WebControls that support AJAX functions. What we need is both of them, some WebControls (like auto-complete or livesearch, a grid that will get data while paging through,...) and the possibility to read data with a minimum of code and JavaScript knowledge. The Atlas Framework will be a complete framework where you will get additional controls.

Large IIS LogFiles using Ajax.NET

For those of you did not had a look at the LogFiles: using Ajax.NET or any other AJAX library will increase the HTTP requests made to the server. If you have enabled the log files you will get very large files.

Ajax.NET and the open source trouble

Some weeks ago I wrote here on my blog that Ajax.NET will go online as an open source project. I tried several hosters for this project but I ran in different problems because I never put source code online using tools like CVS or SVN. Because I want to have the Ajax.NET project an open source project I was searching for developers and companies that have some experience with open source projects.
