Boudewijn,

The only thing I really do is keep looking.

My opinion about for what I see:
a) it's not ready.

b) they have a poor MKT strategy.
I must see practical samples about the netextender/netcompiler like images and code that could bring me something I don’t have in VFP.
Please not a "hello World" sample but something real for an real application.

c) they assume we all understand what a wonderful tool it is, but this is not true, people need to be instructed to see what a netextender/netcopiler and or VFP Developer Studio is and can do for us and where it could help us with our app's.

d) what advantage we get using a netextender/netcopiler and or VFP Developer Studio in our app's, I just don’t see a practical advantage.

e) Is the netcompiler ready? well I'm confused about the netcompiler and the VFP Developer studio, are they the same product? When I look etcnologia site I see a lot of declaration but it doesn’t help me to see the picture of the products they are offering and what I get for the money.

f) Hank with an you tube video give much more help with all than etecnologia.

g) I also miss an help, documentation... how is support?

All the time I feel all is to raw, it's not finished...

Just a question that I don’t see answered:
If I work with VFP Why should I use a etecnologia product, just to run some VFP code in .net, well that's no enough, if I should develop something in .net why use etecnologia, I could start developing in VB.net or in C#, I just don't see the value... and will all .net code run with our VFP code, or are some limitations ?

For what I see, they must work harder to convince me to try the products, a better site, a better explanation about the products and show advantages for a VFP developer, and sorry they maybe are doing a great job, but I just don’t see it when I look the site, and I'm not talking about fancy event's in the site.

It's 04:00 in the morning and I'm tired so excuse me for my English errors.

Peter
