Pardon me but what *people* are you talking about?

You had better qualify that before you get pounded into the dirt.

How is Delphi no match for Access?

Quite frankly I would change professions if you tried to force me to use a
tool like Access.

Stability moreso and speed in my book are non-negotiables. Why should we in
this industry ever act like stability is something to put in a balance. The
thought of this totally makes me nautious. Performance, ok, we can tinker
with that one a little if the usability gains are tremendous, but never
should someone put stability in the balance. Unheard of in my sector...

Pardon the rant...
