Wrox Programmer Forums
Other Programming Languages If you have a coding issue to discuss about another language that really isn't provided for in any other forum here (not ASP.NET C#, C++, VB, PHP, JavaScript, Python, Java, Perl, Applescript, XML or any of the other forum topics we have), post it here. Enough discussion on a language we don't have covered could prompt a new forum.

Default why Visual FoxPro ?

Whats the history behind Visual FoxPro? With all the VB and
C++ etc development environments and Access/SQL databases;
why did MS pursue FoxPro ?

Can anyone point me towards historical info?

I am about to take on some legacy FoxPro work.
Personally I think it would be best to upgrade to vb.net etc rather
thanb go down the route of revamping Foxpro stuff.
