Yes, we all know that Microsoft *bought* FoxPro's underlaying 
technology, that is *FoxBASE*! Everything ever called FoxPro has been a 
Microsoft product.

Agreed that FoxPro's xBase implementation is quite quick, but the fact 
that it's pushed as a high-performance multi-user engine is a bit of an 
insult. If one more of my clients calls me saying "Help! Our medical 
management software won't start! Help!" and it turns out that a reindex 
was attempted while someone was busy inserting pictures of fresh 
incissions I'll be very annoyed (and charging accordingly).

Regards,

Chris
