Well, if it's any consolation, I hope they release the source too but they probably won't so why worry about?
As Craig and Jack have said, VFP ain't gonna break as long as MS has to support those 100,000 applications which includes VFP ... and for the best of reasons - because they want people to use Windows. People can go ahead and worry that the sky is going to fall but life goes on...

> The problem is the VFP core -- at some stage... 1 week, 1 year or 1 decade --- it will need some work on it to make it run better, talk with new hardware and/or patch a security issue.

> If MS is not providing these fixes and the community is unable to then VFP becomes a little less reliable, a little less usable and/or a risk to use. Add one, two, ... of these little problems and you have a big problem.

> I hope... really hope... that the core is released to the public; so VFP lives on... maintained by the community but, as I have already stated, I can't see why MS would want to do this.
