Viscose Fibre Production or Visual FoxPro

Craig has an interesting post talking about GoogleTrends and where FoxPro really fits in. As it turns out, FoxPro is more popular than VFP but what it also highlights is the danger of using acronyms.

If you look at this link, you’ll see that Visual FoxPro isn’t the only use of VFP in the world, which immediately skews some of the results (even Google can’t figure it out – look at the Adwords listed on that page and I can’t find VFP anywhere in it)

Of course, it is nice to know that more people search for FoxPro than xbase and dbase combined.
