OK, so I bought this thing kind of on a whim.

Here is an e-mail I sent them, now that I am a paying customer:


I just ordered your product. I don't even really know exactly what I'm getting into with this thing, but that SharpDev IDE
looks cool, so why not? I just wanted to support your effort and hopefully get some good benefits by purchasing at this
time so I will get updates as the product matures.

Also, I want to give you some comments that I think your website needs some work to make it better, and more complete and professional:

1. You need a top menu item for VFP Developer Studio. Right now, you have an Information page for it, but you can
only get to that link by clicking on the Compiler page first.

2. It is not easy to recognize that you have 3 products and it is unclear exactly how the Compiler product is different
from the Developer Studio product.

3. On the Downloads page, do not repeat product features and details. That’s what the Information pages are for.
The Download page should just be brief information like the Title and VERY brief description, with a link on
each title back to the Information page for that product.

4. You need a screen shot of the Developer Studio on its Information Page. That thing looks cool.
You need to show it off!

5. You need a “Home” link as the first item on the far left of your top menu bar.

6. You need to move the “About Us” top menu item to the right side, between the “Purchase” and “Contact Us”

7. Very Important: You need a more professional looking Purchase page. It looks silly, and does gain my confidence
that I am buying a professional product.

You need to do these things VERY quickly. You do not get a second chance to make a good impression.

Good luck to you, and I look forward to using your product.
