OK, so it is possible to create a new standard, but is it a good idea?

All those that stand out from the crowd (no matter what trade or product) mostly do so because they had their own, higher standards.

Let's start again with this confusing question; I should make it clearer...

Is it that you thought that the Servoy language was going to be more like the FoxPro language and you wanted to see FoxPro like language features & structures & syntax in the Servoy language? Or to put it another way; is it that your expectations of the language exceeded the reality?


It was indeed so that I expected (and still do expect) the productivity and possibilities of the fox language, or at least a clear path to that point. It is clear to me that they will NOT go that way but follow the standard, obviously written in stone, and that standard should obeyed. Hmmm, before I obey to rules layed upon me by an external party they must kill me first.

FYI, it is also clear to me that companies like M$ are not aware of the fact that the VFP language, and more so the features, are really productive. They talk about VISUAL studio, makes me wonder why on earth one needs so much code typing.

Do I like C, C++, C#, Java and alike? No I don't! They all are case sensitive. Case sensitivity is completely bollocks and balderdash in software.

So it is not just from Servoy that I expect that, I expect that from ANY development tool. So far I have not seen anywhere else what VFP had to offer.

Do my expectations exceed reality? I don't know what you mean by that but I strongly believe in the idea that we make our own reality.
