Thanks H.

I´m new regarding IBObjects and trying to make a choose about use
native or not native IBO .

I feel really skeptical about switch to full IBO because it makes me
feel like re-learn (i´m not affraid of lots of stuff) AKO new delphi

But if IBO tech advances continue i feel that it apparts my knowledge
a little bit from the Delphi IDE, and not all my world$$$$ is about
Firebird/Interbase (i was born and living in México) not all of my
customers need applications that can serve more that 6 workstations.

i´m using borland since 1984 (turbo pascal 3) and i feel really
devoted to Mr.Khan.

Sorry about all this out of theme words but i need to.
