Response to: It has never let me down... FOXPRO (VFP)
VFP is great. It has its own easy to deploy runtime. You can compile to .exe. Its IDE if excellent. It is complete with the front-end user interface, middle-ware code and it's own multi-user safe & high performance database engine (desktop). BUT: M$ (aka the Borg) assimilated back in the early 90's what was then a cross platform development tool. Now M$ vision of cross platform for VFP is multiple versions of Windows. Plus M$ can not make a lot of end-user money on a product whos runtime is free.
