Well, first, you ARE angling for our money! That's your job! And there's nothing wrong with that. And there's nothing wrong with "web agencies" telling their clients, or potential clients, that they should use the platform preferred by said web agencies. Everyone's gotta eat. There is, however, a problem with people making uninformed decisions based on what these "web agencies" recommend without any sort of ROI evaluation. That said, your product is not really what I was talking about. I'm constantly hearing people talk about moving from platform X to platform Y, and having to rebuild their applications from scratch accordingly. And, in the vast majority of cases, that's just stupid. It's a bad business decision. http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/fog0000000069.html For example, there was an article in one of the trade mags a while ago about a company that ported their app from CF to .NET, and then to Java. Now that's just all kinds of dumb. To the extent that your product allows people to preserve their investment in their application code, that's a good thing. To the extent that people have to modify their code when migrating from CF7 to BD.NET (or to CF8), that's a significant cost that people often overlook.
