FoxPro finally retired.

Microsoft has pulled the plug on its old flagship database app, FoxPro. After buying the company and integrating into Microsoft as its main database app, Microsoft has finally killed it. Granted, it has been on life-support for some time now. It was a good app for its day, and Microsoft even had a Mac version of it too. Sadly Microsoft is using its Sequel server to replace it, I believe for one reason, money. Its easier to charge for a client/server model then it is for just FoxPro. (FoxPro could make compiled applications which could live on a fileserver for multiuser access.
