All of my current work is Firebird/PHP/Apache - on Linux or
Windows. Not a Microsoft licence around if I don't need it.

I don't trust Borland to give us a working Builder6 any time
soon, and all my customers have said "Move to Linux" so I
say again. Do we need .net? - I don't :)

IBO on Builder5 is still fine for the problem bits, and I
can't be bothered to move to the copy of Builder6 that I
paid for.
