Hey!
This thing seems to be extremely powerful, however it is bloated, and some things are harder than with the standart libraries. However I am kinda impressed

Poking at this I immediately dislike their licensing terms, which makes me hesitant to use it. (Their license agreement also appears to be unavailable too.) For the "license-required" classes the lowest price you have to pay is $289.00. I don't really see what this offers other than a uniform API over multiple libraries that already exist and that are fully open source. The idea and concept is awesome, but their licensing isn't very reasonable.

Yeah, I thought the same, but on the other hand, you get some specific APIs wrapped up. Licence is availabled in every package you download from their site. I am writing a test application to compare performance with the standart .NET libraries.
I know, I am probably doing millions of things wrong. Correct me if you see anything.

I've already used them about 10 years ago. They once were pretty well advanced due to open source not being such a well-known and popular thing, but most of their stuff should be accomplishable by open source or at least cheaper third-party packages too.
