Great post by Craig Bailey on ideas for making VFP cool.
How to make Visual Foxpro cool
I just spent a half day at a Microsoft seminar on new stuff in .NET 2.0, Enterprise Library, etc. I must admit there was a lot of cool stuff but there were also several things that I thought "Wow, I've been doing that same thing with VFP (or VFE) for years now" - but the "perception" is that it's so much cooler doing it with .NET, and I guess I would say that it probably is more cool. Unfortunately, my clients usually don't want to pay for "cool". They expect that for free.
