FoxPro is dead. Well sort of. Microsoft has announced that it will not be releasing any new versions of its Visual FoxPro development software past Version 9.0, but the company will continue to support the technology through 2015. Here’s the Microsoft announcement. We’ve never developed in FoxPro as we viewed it as quite inferior to the Delphi environment we use. This announcement is interesting because FoxPro is used by two of our competitors one of whom is on the market. Their software is worth less today as a result of the Microsoft announcement.
