Opening Remarks: Battling Fox FUD

We've all dealt with it - the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) spread by Fox-haters. It comes in many forms: in the guise of subtle innuendo in magazine articles ("and then there's Visual FoxPro, a legacy dBASE-like database system popular years ago"), apparent 'mis-steps' by MSFT marketing ("Oh, is Fox missing from our list of products again?"), or simply stupid accusations by folks with an axe to grind ("I heard that MSFT is going to kill FoxPro.")

How do you accurately and dispassionately deal with the fear-mongers when pitching an upgrade, rewrite or new application to a potential customer or boss? In our opening session, we'll take an objective, if spirited, look at why Fox is the best choice for many desktop, client-server and Web applications. Then we'll present many common objections that developers have faced over the years, and how to successfully counter them.
