BLOG . VisualFoxpro and Feedback Center
When Microsoft released that MSDN Product Feedback Center (aka LadyBug) weeks ago, I was there in that site figuring out if there is something wrong with the combo box since I can't seem to find Visual Foxpro in it. I even tried using FireFox thinking something is wrong with the browser. After fifteen minutes I gave up and was in that 'here-we-go-again-microsoft' mindset once again.
Even my pet tiger that's beginning to develop this affection for VisualFoxpro started scratching my Logitech mouse. I was beginning to fear that the peace talk agreement between this tiger and the mouse was starting to expire.
So I decided to type 'Foxpro' instead in that textbox and found this post from a certain JimN. One of the lines I like most in that post is this:
Users of Visual FoxPro essentially PIONEERED this current feedback mechanism by virtue of its online widely available and WIDELY USED "Wish List" hosted on the Universal Thread web site. Releases 8 and 9 of Visual FoxPro demonstrated in spades the value of a feedback mechanism for both the product users AND the product's development team.
I heard my pet tiger hooting in the background.
Today John Koziol posted the reasons why VisualFoxpro was not included.
Now I'm sure I swear I saw my pet tiger licking the Logitech mouse moments ago. He haven't done that since he first saw that Feedback Center.
I'd probably buy some pizza later tonight. No not for me... but for this renewed peace.
