Never liked it, too resource intensive. It has now become yet another casualty of Microsoft.
I’m quite happy with Kate, btw.
For years I used Dbase III+ on Unix (Foxbase) and Foxpro (all the way up to 9, the last version before M$ bought and killed it). Really miss them, nothing compares or is available any more
You could always use dbase5 in a dosbox…
Luckily I haven’t had to run any matches across 17 million entries or so in a while…
I had DBIII running in a dosbox, but cannot find the disk anywhere (and no longer have a floppy drive).
I’d have to some digging too - it is definitely on an old Win machine, and I have one (older) machine with a combo drive (3.5 floppy, SD card etc etc) that I might be able to resuscitate - if I can’t find it (dbase5) loose somewhere. Perhaps even one of the old Win machines might boot and enable network access… quite a trick to get at the old stuff! Maybe go through the Amiga - I have floppies on that!
It will be on one of the abandonware sites, they are all blocked at work
Try archive.org …
a pity , but it was foreseeable that microsoft would rely on vs code
This is interesting, the developer of Atom is now working on:
Can’t access zed.dev at work will read tonight!!
@ivanhoe dammit i’m
So when M$ kill it, we know what to say
written in Rust
for performance it is better than electron. very good approach
Awesome! +10 hipster points from the start.
“BTW, it’s written in Rust” is the new “BTW, I use Arch”
Stop putting words in my mouth
How can you miss something you never used.
and the vampire now got wings with codespaces
I hear you. Once Ashton Tate went down, that was the end of an era for me. I did buy Foxpro, can’t remember which version. I had so many projects in DbIII, Foxpro looked like a good fit. Then the bad news came, M$ got their grubby hands on it, and that was the end. I gave all my code to my dev who got it runnin gon Nanucket Clipper and I took a very long vacation from application programming. Hey, come to think of it, I’m still on that vacation.
btw, bye bye Atom, we won’t miss you.
