I am very unhappy with having to pay for FoxView version 8, which sounds like
it might finally be a product worth using.  I have been thinking seriously
about switching from DM to FoxView, as Foxboro has been urging us to do, but
this will in all probability nix that idea.  Why would what is supposed to be
the basic graphics package for the I/A be separated from the rest of the basics
of the system????  Are they not really trying to improve their image?  It's a
shame (and bad publicity) that the Foxboro I/A graphics in our mill have to
continue to look ancient compared to the Honeywell graphics in our mill....
