Your new programming environment gonna be Windows. Mainly you will deal
with other things in principle, than we used in Clipper. So Clipper
compatibility question is one of what fragments of older-apps/experience
will still be useful to you. Not too many, since Windows design will change
Official replacement for Clipper is VO. If it was stable enough (there are
people that use it), it wasn't bad choice to have still something familiar
in your new challenge. As to VO language itself it is good - simple enough,
clear as it is possible, able to deal with categories of higher level, as
well as low too.
Though speaking about going to Windows development, not big distance has
left to other RAD tools, like Delphi (using Pascal) or Powersoft Optima++
(using C++) or others. Optima++ has TestDrive evaluation, which is quick
and impressive. What is better to choose is subjective - would you prefer
particular RAD tools design/productivity or language.
