I'm not pleased about Microsoft buying Fox at all. I program FoxPro 2.0, and it's the only one out there that civilizes (i.e. GUI-izes) DOS databases in a quick, attractive manner. I hate to see a killer program hacked to pieces by Microsoft, although the Windows and Mac versions might come out sooner because of it. This surprised me even more because all of the regional Microsoft salesthings got training on the Microsoft database over the Christmas holidays, and said it would be out in the summer."
