  1. I've been in love with PowerBuilder for the past 15 years, it is so easy to use and I love the DataWindow, but wistfully must say I have to let it go ... because every time it stay further back ... not to mention that HTML5 and javascript is the future and PowerBuilder has not the slightest intention of approaching these technologies. Appeon is just a rough patch. By this I say: Thank Powerbuilder, thank you very much ... but bye ... that I can not let you drag me to your death.
