Subject RE: [IBO] Delphi 6 Personal
Author Norman Dunbar

I have a copy of D6 personal which I downloaded from Borland. I can use it
for anything I like, provided I don't let anything 'out of the house', so
personal use only as per the magazine.

As far as building apps like BCB 5 Pro, then you may be disapointed. The
only components on the internet tab are a pair of sockets, there is no
database stuff etc either. However, having said that, IBO installs very
nicely (in less than 5 mins from unzip to running !) if you don't install
the TDataset or Web stuff. Simply open the project group and remove all the
*X* and *W* packages.

Much easier than C++ Builder I'm afraid. And, as for compilation times,
first time I used it I thought I had an error, it compiled and run in
millseconds :o)

Subject: [IBO] Delphi 6 Personal

Delphi 6 Personal has just been released on a front cover CD
( in the UK ).

Usual problem of not being able to distribute projects
developed using it, but ignoring the legality problem, as a
Non Delphi user, could I use this copy and IBO and build the
same sorts of program that I currently do with Builder 5

I suppose the question is - IF I wanted to change, could I
get way with a Personal copy of Delphi - or is the same
distribution restriction applied there as well ?
