First, Microsoft virtually abandons VFP marketing because it doesn't rake in that much profit for the entity. Then when an opportunity pops up to widen its distribution channel with Linux, it threatens to take legal action. The fact that MS "thinks" there are not a lot of VFP users out there compared to VB, it should not feel threatened by the outflux of these developers from Windows to Linux, unless they are in denial that there is a great number of these developers and it will really hurt their year-end financials. But just the same, it only emphasizes one thing, that VFP will always be second-class citizen in MS organization.
