Who is this Frank Fischer, MS .NET evangelist of Microsoft Germany, anyway?
I found this by doing a technorati search for FoxPro – this was on the first page – obviously they are pinging the right blogs if something from 2004 was listed on the first page.
The Fox Team should do something about MS “evangelists” spreading their words. While Ken and everyone else is stepping away from declaring Sedna a “release”, this guy actually says:
* Q: What about Foxpro ?
* R: We are forced by customers to maintain it. We have an eight-year commitment to maintenance. But don’t move to it: it’s a dead-end. Use VS instead.
(of course, he’s a DotNet evangelist but he could have worded it a bit better).
Interesting comment though: Until Longhorn, .NET is built on top of COM. Starting with Longhorn, the building direction is reversed: COM has been rebuilt on top of .NET
