I think you underestimate the complete bumbling incompetence of Inprise
management. They nearly destroyed this fine product with NO
competition(comparable product of course). They were ready to literally,
throw it in the trash can, until the developers came to it's rescue. What
chance would they have if they actually had a competitor? They are notorious
for badly managing/marketing products. Delphi is arguably the finest
development package on the planet, yet they fail to compete with far
inferior products like VisualBasic. There is no reason to believe they will
change now.

BTW, have you been watching their stock value? They are heading for serious
trouble. I think I am going to reserve the domain "" after
I send this E-mail.

Blunder on Dale....
