AJAX Usage Among .NET Developers in 2009: Survey

Are .NET developers using using MVC or WebForms with their AJAX?

A couple of years ago Simone Chiaretta did a survey of .NET Developers usage of Ajax..   I just saw that he is refreshing that survey to see what has changed in the industry. 

Are people still actively moving to Ajax?

Are they using MVC or WebForms with their Ajax?  Which ones of the *many* ajax frameworks out there are they using?  Feel free to write-in Silverlight if that is your current preference for this style of application.

Very interesting data… and while clearly not a scientific survey, it is an interesting data point as Simone has agreed to publish all the data he gets.  

Here is what he has so far.

So please take a few minutes and fill out the survey and pass it on to your colleagues.
