"FoxPro versus SQL Server".

Microsoft's recommendation is #1:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vfoxpro/productinfo/faq/default.aspx ("FoxPro is a developer tool, SQL Server is a database engine").

You might also try Googling "Migrating FoxPro to SQL Server", "FoxPro SQL Server Security", etc. Here's another link about "Building VFP Apps for SQL Server": http://www.informit.com/articles/article.asp?p=174330&rl=1

I'm no VFP developer, but apparently the two don't have to be mutually exclusive. In fact MS seems to recommend using SQL Server as a back-end for VFP, because SQL Server provides "security, reliability, replication, and many other features of a full relational database engine" while VFP "does not have many of those features."
