i agree with the remarks about usability, i love the Delphi UI, much easier to program for me, although i think it's subjective as im sure a lot of people will prefer the VS UI.

However stability is not Delphi's strong point as it's usually a rollercosta ride. Delphi 3 excellent product, delphi 4 bug ridden PITA, delphi 5,6,7 again good products although the .net stuff in 7 was patchy. However 8 had gone back to being a little unstable.

Out of all of them i still prefer delphi 6, pretty much stable and quite quick aswell.

Nice thing about delphi is the components are usually well written. The language strikes a nice balance for new users and pro's, and ive found the EXE's (win32) one of the fastest compiled.

I hope Borland is REALLY going back to it's roots with their turbo products, as they are very funcational and well designed and personally i find Delphi the fastest and best RAD software out there.

It would be nice if they went cross platform (Win/Mac/Linux), in a better way than Klyix.
