TechRepublic's Justin James says Alpha Five 'is a much better solution than Microsoft Access'

Carving out time to conduct a product review can be time and labor intensive for any writer. So when we wait for a publication to release a review of Alpha Five, we hold our breath for quite a while.

Today is one of those days when I'm exhaling after holding my breath for months. Tech Republic's Justin James released his review of Alpha Five Version 10.5 -- and it's a good one.

Thanks, Justin, for taking the time to go through the nitty-gritty details of Alpha Five to give readers an unbiased look at what our development tool is capable of.

If you're already an Alpha Five user, a lot of what Justin talks about will sound familiar to you. And if you're a developer looking to migrate your apps to Alpha Five, Justin does a brief comparison to Microsoft Visual FoxPro, Sybase PowerBuilder, and Microsoft Access.

However, Justin doesn't directly compare Alpha Five with Microsoft Access. But he does agree that when it comes to solving common problems, Alpha Five is the solution to choose. I won't spoil all of his hard work here. Instead, flip over to the review and give it a read yourself.

Richard -

Glad that you liked the review! I do think Alpha Five is a good product, and worthy of the praise that I've heard its users give.

Sorry to keep you guys waiting for so long! Alicia deserves a lot of credit for staying with me in a way that was not annoying to make sure I had what was needed for the review.
