MS says no to FoxPro on Linux

Ed Leafe sent me this link. He's one of the best FoxPro developers in the world. I appreciate someone who continues to use a tool that doesn't see a lot of glory, simply because it's superior to the alternatives.

The Register: MS legal threat derails Foxpro on Linux demo

A developer wanted to show a fully-licensed copy of Visual FoxPro running on Linux via WINE, and an MS droid layeth'd the smack down in response. So far there has been no explanation for how that would be against the EULA. Sigh.

BTW, Ed's site runs on Zope. :-)
