	Well, there are at least a half-million Visual FoxPro developers who 
have been hung out to dry by Microsoft, most of whom would love to 
leave the land of proprietary closed solutions for a bit of fresh air. 
That's where Paul and I came from, and that was our initial motivation 
for deciding to develop Dabo - there wasn't a Python tool out there 
that could even begin to approach what we were used to with VFP. If we 
could get Dabo to the point where someone familiar with VFP or even VB 
could become productive in a short time, well, I'm certain that there 
will be lots of new blood in these parts. Our work is being followed 
very closely by those communities.
