In December we ran a sweepstake on Facebook; in January we had a grand prize draw. The winner of the sweepstake prize, an iPad 2, was Michael Sevast. He was much surprised to find that he had won but also had kind words to say about Aspose: “We have used the Apose.Total for .NET components, for several years now. These tools greatly simplify our ability to interact with and export to known Microsoft formats. The speed of these components saves us considerable time over custom in-house solutions.”
