Ed Foster wrote many seminal columns in his Gripe Line column at InfoWorld over the past 11 years. Now, he’s off on his own, creating a new website/blog/web publication at http://www.gripe2ed.com. One of his first columns is on the Visual (not Virtual, Ed, at least not yet!) FoxPro End User License controversies.
While he focuses on the primary problem of Visual FoxPro runtimes being tied to the Windows platforms, the other issues of restricting distribution to Microsoft’s new Installer technologies, and the slipstreamed requirements for upgraders to remove previous versions of the application (both summarized and linked here) are not discussed.
