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.

The first version of Turbo Pascal I ever used was 3 (in high school). I think the first version I bought was 4, but my favorite was starting with 5.5. I've always been an OO nut and favor it over procedural programming.

Borland was my favorite company for a long time. They just did things right, from their license agreement to their products and product pricing. The Borland of old is surely missed by me.
