It depends on what visual components you are planning on using. With TIB_
controls, you can only use the visual controls that come with IBO, because
TIB_ components are not TDataset descendants. With TIBO controls, you can
only use the Delphi data-aware components(or any 3rd party that supports
TDataset descendants). I use both depending what my needs are and I do use
both sets in one application. Work with what you are comfortable with and
use the tools that suits the job at hand.

Not really.
