The end of the line for FoxPro

The day has finally come when Microsoft have announced the end of the line for FoxPro. There will not be any future versions and support will come to an end in 2015.

Thanks to Robert Shelton for the news

Official announcement

I have never been a FoxPro developer and I am surprised that it has taken this long. I know there are huge numbers of applications out there that use FoxPro as a database but I could never see why Microsoft needed 3 desktop/ workgroup database products. Either way should ensure that FoxPro experts will be in big demand porting the applications to Access or SQL Express.
