[2003.05.02] Wow, amazing. See other Spectacular Underachievements. See also http://microsoft.com , and thereon click developer tools, observe this leads to Visual Studio, with no links to VFP. I told Ken Levy about this on April 28th 2003. -- Steven Black This is fixed on July 28, 2003. It took 3 months. -- Steven Black
[2003.05.05] I attended the Windows Server 2003/Visual Studio .NET 2003 launch last week. On the evaluation form, under the part where you tell them what developement tools you use, they actually had "Visual FoxPro (any version)" listed. It was quite a surprise. - William Fields
