Isn't internet a cool medium where you can find all types of silly jokes and silly (well unknowledgeable is more appropriate) programmers/customers as well:) They have reasonable points too:

"Many FoxPro databases were designed by inexperienced developers, and so the underlying database design could actually use a lot of improvement. It's like comparing homemade clothes to professionally tailored clothes. "

"Your FoxPro system was probably created 15 years ago."

I think they are still thinking in terms of foxpro 2x. Look at this:

"How experienced are you with FoxPro?
Enough. We need to be experienced enough to get the data out, and to converse with you intelligently about your requirements, with frequent references to the current processes as implemented in the FoxPro database. We don’t have to be FoxPro gurus, which is good, since we're not. "

Enough for what:) To get the data out:)))) So in the same manner almost all Foxpro developers are experienced enough on SQL server, Oracle, MySQL, DB2, ... and even Access!!! Because they can get data out of those mediums. Great, I didn't know that I am experienced enough developer for Access:)

PS: I wonder if they really find customers crazy enough to do that 'migration'.
