It is my personal experience that programming language rarely matters. Delphi happens to be my favorite hammer, but I also program in a number of other languages besides Object Pascal, on platforms other than Intel. Those languages include C and C++ among others.

With the exception of templates, C++ code can be transliterated line for line into Object Pascal and the compilers will produce virtually identical output. There is no strong technical reason to prefer one language over the other.

Since I am trying to avoid dependencies on specific DBMS, IBPP does not meet my requirements any more than the functionally identical native Interbase interface for Object Pascal.

There are technical reasons to prefer the GCLIB over the Delphi VCL for some things, and vice versa. Superiority is in a context, not inherent.

I agree with Mr Klopers's response - a few years experience or same digging under the covers will change your mind.

Its my personal opinion (no flames please) that Delphi sucks. Could I
suggest you have a look at C++ & IBPP?
