General Development With the free Turbo Explorer line, Borland brings programming to the masses. Each of the four Turbo Explorer 'personalities' targets a different combination of programming language and platform: Turbo Delphi and Turbo C++ for Windows, and Turbo Delphi and Turbo C# for .NET. There are over 200 components for building programs, but the abundance of features may be overwhelming to new users.

I have high hopes that these Turbo Tools will attract student's and hobbyist's as new users

Ya know, I'm a Windows guy and I've been using VB6 for years as a hobbyist, developing little utils for myself. Since VB6 is pretty much dead, I've been thinking about moving on. I've given Delphi some thought, but given the nature of Borland, I have to wonder if Delphi will still be around a few years from now, or will it go the way of Kylix? Pascal is not quite like C++, Java, or C# ... I mean, if not for Delphi, then what else is there in the Pascal arena?

You can use FreePascal, which uses an Object Pascal that is very compatible with Delphi's language. FreePascal runs on many different OS'es.
