Much has been written about the battles that rage between software companies over market share. FoxTales is the story of one such battle, told from the perspective of a foot soldier. My perspective.
When I started with Fox Software, it was a company of barely thirty people. It shared space in a small bank building on the edge of Ohio's farm country. It was a quaint, family run business, and its product, FoxBASE+, was a niche player.
The next four years brought many surprises: lawsuits, buyouts, off-the-wall management, and even a flying book or two. Things no college course could prepare you for.
And to think, I could've been a farmer.
