Legal Let's do a little trip down memory lane. We're talking the '80s, early '90s, and we're looking at a company called Borland, which produced several well-known and popular products related to software development. Back in those days, Borland had an end user license agreement. However, contrary to the EULAs we know and despise today, Borland's 'No-Nonsense License Statement' was a whole lot simpler, and in fact, is a perfect example of how software should be treated.

Delphi is still my development environment of choice. I've owned most versions of Delphi since 1.0 and about the only one I truly hated was 2005 (not so much for the change in looks but because it was one very buggy product), though I did run into quite a few limitations with 1.0 and short strings. I just bought Delphi 2010 from Embarcadero (the current owners of Delphi) and am liking it so far.
