FileMaker vs. Servoy - Revisited

Postby rochard » Wed Sep 08, 2004 12:45 pm

Ah, which is better? Guinness or Stout? Bush or Kerry? FileMaker or Servoy?

In the case of Guinness or Stout, both taste abominable!

In the case of Bush or Kerry, anybody but Bush!

In the case of FileMaker or Servoy; that's more difficult to answer but maybe the attached file will prove useful! Bear in mind that this is my opinion and mine alone but I was asked to compile a comparison and, as I did so, I was absolutely amazed by the number of quantitative and qualitative advantages.

After working with Servoy for almost a year and having gone through a very difficult and frustrating learning process, the light bulb finally went on about 6 weeks ago and I am now making, for the most part, rapid progress. Bottom line is I love Servoy! It is so cool in so many ways and I can see tremendous potential in it.

Going back a number of years (17+), I remember when I announced to my friends and colleagues that I was going to specialize in FileMaker and do nothing else but Filemaker. There wasn't one person who gave me any encouragement; in fact, most of them told me that I was certifiably insane and that I would go broke within a year! To say, they were wrong would be a mild understatement!

So now for the next 17 years (which will take me way past retirement age), I am going to specialize in Servoy and focus all of my efforts on it. I foresee many sleepless nights - this is one of them; much gnashing of teeth (or dentures); frequent posts to this Forum and above all, a sense of joy at being able to do some amazing things for my clients with this fantastic program!

With that in mind, I bid you all goodnight and hope that the attachment will prove useful, informative and a starting point for continuous discussion.
