Recently, MS introduced a new feedback method called “Ladybug” that allows customers to post and track feedback on bugs and issues with a product. VFP is not a product supported at this time and this has generated some feedback. I'd like to take this opportunity to explain why we don't participate :
- We don't have the resources. Ladybug is very interactive and consumes resources for participating products to track issues and provide feedback. Whidbey (.Net) is shipping way beyind VFP 9 and can allocate these resources - we cannot. We're all fully involved with product testing.
- We believe we have a much great rapport with our community than other product teams. To us, this lessens the need. There ara myriad of ways for a VFP developer to let us know what's right and wrong.
If I'm wrong and a million voices in anger send email demanding VFP support, I'm sure we'd reconsider.
