Response to: It has never let me down... FOXPRO (VFP)

M$ is trying to get people to $pend more on their SQL server systems, than to let us use FoxPro which can do it all in one package.


You're right, M$ doesn't make anything on a free runtime distribution, but they are trying to change that. Take Windoze XP for example. There are installs that won't work because they aren't registered as a M$ Logo authorized install. Thus requiring the user to have the CD available whenever the application runs. Which it works fine on all other M$ OS versions.
