Well, that didn't work so well...

Oops... My bad... Can't blame me for trying... Or maybe you could... :)

I should have asked for honest feedback about your Delphi 2009 and C++Builder 2009 experience so far, whether it be the field test, the trial or the actual shipping product.

If you feel like providing me with such feedback, please send me an email at

In addition, if you would like to be possibly quoted and highlighted on our web site, please include your name, title and company.

Thanks a bunch!

5 seconds flat!

Enjoy a 10 second clip of Delphi 2009 Architect launching where the last frame after 5.20 seconds is frozen. I had fun timing this one to the beat...


Edit: This was a warm start (meaning a bunch of .NET stuff cached). I just did a cold start after reboot - 12 seconds. Not bad either.
