Well, this is no secret, I think. If not for the quick GUI development
thanks to the VCL adapted to BCB (or better said, C++ twisted to support
Boland-Pascal extensions), MSVC would beat BCB in all aspects 1000 times.
Just look at the debugger. How many watchers and the like can you have with
MSVC without any performance drain when debugging? I have a lot of while I
debug Firebird. No pain. Now, try to do the same in BCB... nobody will wait
10 seconds for the next step to execute.

Now, returning to IB/FB, your experience caught my attention. How do you use
FB with MSVC? Do you use MFC classes to wrap ADO or OLE/DB functionality?
