The idea to have a Fox logo identifying those applications built with Visual FoxPro came from a message posted in The Universal Thread by Plinio Fermin, in may, 23 2002 (message 660531 - you have to be logged in the Universal Thread in order to see the message), where he wrote:
"One great idea for marketing VFP could be creating a Logo that we could use on our "About" and "splash " forms. Something like a fox with a label "Made With Visual Foxpro"."
The first reply to Plinio's message came from Alonso Licks, and reads:
"I prefer Powered by Visual FoxPro. :)"
There followed many replies to his message and Michel Fournier, came with:
"I'll be happy to afford that contribution cost to obtain a professional layout. I should have that within a few days."
Just two days latter Michel Fournier announced the availability to download and use the "Powered by Microsoft Visual FoxPro" logo sponsored by Fournier Transformation.
