FoxPro Going to CodePlex
I just saw that Microsoft is moving FoxPro to the CodePlex site. In other words, as the company has made a decision not to move FoxPro beyond the 9.0 version it will enable the dev community that is passionate about the technology to continue to work on it in a collaborative environment. I think this is very cool for many reasons. Technology progresses, and as some technologies meet the natural end of their lifespan in terms of market opportunity (from the vendor perspective), that does not mean that it is the end of the lifecycle for those that use it. I was deeply involved in the Y2K issue and saw the reality of this issue.
I don't have much time to comment on this, but just thought it was worth calling it out.
