Large scale survey: SUS, NPS or ...?

I have an opportunity to survery a very large number of users before the release of a new version in January. I was considering using the net promoter survey but then read some articles that were critical of NPS. The release is on a particular page of a web app and will grab the users while using that specific tool. I've used SUS in the past but typically with internal users that are not critical enough.

1. to re-design an existing web based reporting / management application so
that it is more intuitive and better adheres to the users¹ mental model
(it¹s currently as intuitive as a DOS prompt...)

Asian growth in design (was RE: Revenge of the Right-side of the brain)

The issue of Asian Design is a VERY interesting one. It is especially
interesting in industrial design and I'm sure it will eventually cross over
into interaction design as these are so linked together.

China especially is putting a lot of money into this effort by building some
hundreds of design programs as they want to bring more value to their
manufacturing services by closing more of the loop on the total process.

Here is an interesting interview with the recently hired director of the
design program at a university in Hong Kong.

Question: Experience with Dojo?

Does anyone have any experience with leveraging Dojo (http://dojotoolkit.org/
) on a production app?

We prototyping an open source survey service and using the Dojo js
framework; we're questioning our choice.

Any words of wisdom?

Thanks in advance,
