Actually, I am pretty trapped in doing Delphi, but I like it a lot.

I dislike C(++) what several reasons but I do have a little
experience with it.

I've done Java for some time - nice, but I was glad whenever
I could do Delphi :-)

That being said, it is very true that you can learn language XX
if you know language YY as long as the idea behind it is pretty
much the same (eg: object orientation).
