Cetin.

Appreciate hearing about your strategy.   It seems very sound.

All signs seem to point right back in Microsoft's direction.   In software for the telecom
industry, the market I follow in my work, Oracle and Java have been the standards for many years.
But recently I've noticed a few Microsoft vendor shops have been gaining strength.

One of those companies is developing on a new Big Data platform that MS is building, so even that
high performance barrier is breaking down.

The interesting thing about the cloud is that nobody really cares what platform your software runs on,
so that plays into Microsoft's hand and may be useful to VFP too.

We do want it to convert but the boss is reluctant on the time it might take. I believe it would take much shorter than what he thinks and we would have a multiplatform, enhanced version of what we have now but I can't dare to insist on it (what if his timing wins:) For web part of our VFP based application, I initially did use a well known 3rd party and kept my VFP code. It was a mistake. On next iteration after some years when we couldn't bear with the problems of it anymore, wrote it from scratch using Silverlight. End result was much better. Now there is another project as an extension to that, including mobiles, we are currently discussing to do it either web based with HTML5, CSS3 (maybe with icenium) or write that natively for the target platforms with C#.

What I choose there is greatly fluctuating, sometimes I go for VFP, sometimes C#, C++ or one other (hate fortran and can't use myself but may need to check others' codes as if I understand:).

It is slow and awkward to work with (everyone doesn't have luxury to work on high speed internet, for example today, our WAN speeds dropped down to less than 0.25 Mbps). It is developing very fast OTOH, and "no installation need", "data is at the same location where UI is" ... are tempting and also the possibilities of creating much better UI. Our institute has a series of applications that work as web applications (written with Oracle objects I think and using jvm) and I find myself dealing with their problems most of the time and speed is not something that I would accept if it were my application. Wish I knew something like WPF that would work everywhere :)
