The Adobe Source Libraries have been used with success within Adobe applications to increase robustness and correctness of code. As developers of an open source project, we are confident that there are other success stories outside of Adobe as well. We encourage you to contribute a success story of your own:

Initially to develop an easy-to-use photo management application for the Linux desktop, but eventually to develop a platform based on ASL for building simple digital media applications.
I have been very impressed with the quality of the ASL libraries and have learned a huge amount about modern C++ and software design from ASL.
ASL was not used from the start of the project. It caused me to re-evaluate the way that I build UI software.
Fairly small, probably less than one man year's work.
I have just made the first public release.
I am hoping to contribute some of the better developments I have made in Mission back to ASL.
