Will Microsoft Market Visual FoxPro?

Locate in Contents | (framed)

Locate in Discussion | (framed) 

The purpose of this page is to solicit an informal vote by the Visual FoxPro community as to whether you would consider signing an open letter to Microsoft encouraging them to take VFP marketing and promotion much more seriously.  The question is not whether you endorse any particular draft of such a letter, only whether you're open the idea in general.  If you care about the the future of Visual FoxPro, please cast your vote below.  If and when we complete and agree upon a draft of this letter, you will have an opportunity to decide whether you're willing to sign it.  Anyone who's interested is invited to participate in drafting an OpenLetterToMicrosoft (on the Fox Wiki) or consider my own Open Letter to Microsoft, but please vote first.  If you're too busy, or you're content to leave the writing to others, you will still be doing all of us a great service simply by adding your name to either the Yes or No list.  Feel free to add your own thoughts to the Comments page on the Fox Wiki, or post a message to this IdeaXchg forum, and remember to check the Announcements page after you've put your name on the list.

A Little History Lesson

FoxPro is great, but Multics was monumental.  Each of them, in its time, could lay claim to being the best thing of its kind.  If you are wondering "what the hell is Multics?", well that's the first lesson right there.  The principal reason for the demise of Multics was not a lack of technical excellence.  Multics died from a lack of marketing, because it was acquired by a company that was incapable of wholeheartedly supporting its adopted child.  The amazing thing is just how long Multics hung on after Honeywell pulled the plug in July, 1985.  As a former Multician, it brought a lump to my throat when I read the the letter from Prof. Fernando J. Corbato, (the father of Multics) announcing that the last Multics site was shutting down on October 30, 2000.

So please excuse me if I sound like an alarmist, but I'm probably one of the few Multician/VFP-ers who ever existed. I know you guys are just as tired as I am of the old "VFP is dead" routine, but take a moment to consider this lesson from history: Cinderella stories don't always end happily.  VFP may not be dead, but it's in critical condition, and Microsoft's self-contradictory strategy of developing without commensurate marketing is an intolerable prescription.  VFP doesn't have to die if Microsoft gets its head together and embraces VFP as a legitimate, productive member of its family.

What's the Urgency?

Despite valiant efforts and rumors to the contrary, VFP is dying out of senseless neglect.  A thing of tremendous value is being destroyed for no good reason, to the detriment of everyone, but especially to the detriment of Microsoft and all of us in the VFP community.

That VFP is dying may be viewed by some as an overstatement, but I'm not convinced that the beta release of VFP 7 and earnest discussion of VFP 8 and beyond really prove anything to the contrary.  It has come to be axiomatic that Microsoft doesn't actively promote VFP, and we've grudgingly put up with that for years, content to accept a steady stream of significant upgrades to this splendid product.  But if you'll excuse the metaphor, Microsoft keeps offering us more slices of cake while we're dying of thirst.  This imbalance between product development and marketing has finally taken its toll in a very striking, objectively measurable way: the count of job listings for VFP both in absolute numbers and as a percentage of all categories of programming have dropped dramatically in the last few years.  Short of going negative, these statistics couldn't look much worse.  By that measure, VFP is most assuredly in dire distress.  A programming tool without programmers makes even less sense than development without marketing, and Microsoft will inevitably be drawn to the conclusion that any further investment in VFP is a waste of money.

What's in it for Microsoft

If there is a great unfulfilled potential in VFP to be making money for Microsoft, and they could easily capitalize on this potential, both of which assertions I strongly believe, then Microsoft has much to gain by rectifying the situation without delay.  On the other hand, if Microsoft fails to rescue VFP, they will not only have lost a valuable opportunity, but they are likely to experience negative repercussions from a justifiably indignant community of former Microsoft customers.

How Dare We!

Why should it be necessary for us to be telling Microsoft how to make more money?  Surely they have amply demonstrated their competence at doing that, just as they have also demonstrated their technical competence in fostering the continued development of FoxPro. Who are we to be telling Microsoft how to run its business?  Well, I wouldn't normally presume to do this, but it happens that in this particular case my own selfish interests are at stake, and the issue means even more to me as a VFP developer than it means to me as a Microsoft shareholder.  Therefore I feel compelled to speak out forcefully on this matter, because it really is more than a minor inconvenience to me (not to mention thousands of others), and I suspect that Microsoft, in its ultimate wisdom, could be persuaded to behave more sensibly.


Would you consider signing an open letter to Microsoft urging them to wholeheartedly support both the further development and marketing of VFP much more seriously than they have ever done in the past?  Do you think that a compelling business argument can be made?  Do you think that such a document could sway Microsoft from its seeming determination to make the demise of VFP a self-fulfilling prophesy?  If you dismiss this as a hopeless, idealistic endeavor, would you reconsider if you saw a thousand signatures?  All you have to do is indicate a willingness to consider it, and you will help to inspire the effort to create a letter worthy of our signing.  If we build it, they will come.

Please cast your informal ballot, even if it's anonymous, and feel free to add your comments either on the Fox Wiki, or on IdeaXchg:

The complete list of votes, which follows, will be updated periodically to include any changes requested via the Fox Wiki, IdeaXchg, Usenet, or any other means.  You can also email your request to me, although requests via Wiki or IdeaXchg would generally be preferable to email.  Whichever means you use to submit your name, please indicate whether you would like to display your email link in the list, which is highly desirable, but not required.  Email addresses can also be submitted to me privately, but I won't publish these unless explicitly requested to do so.

Yes, I would consider signing such an open letter to Microsoft:

I support this idea, and I'd be glad to participate in the writing if enough other people showed an interest. --
