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.

  1. Was that a cold or a warm start of the IDE?

  2. I edited the post to reflect that a warm start takes 5 seconds, and a cold start takes 12 seconds on my machine.

  4. Thanks! That's my car and a toy car look-alike. I took it for a "sense of scale" photo contest.

  5. Very impresive .. But what about stability ? Has that improved also ? The IDe of Delphi 2007 never became stable ... Nad what about the help file ? I gave up using the on in Delphi 2007.

  7. May I suggest all of you CodeGear bloggers put your name in the header somewhere? I quite often link to these blogs from Delphi and wonder, "Who's site is this?" Also, it would be nice if each page were timestamped so we could know if this is recent information or ancient history. Just a suggestion.

  8. very cool !! today i tried D2009 it seems very fantastic , generics and unicode are a great innovation. But now i have some WebServices done in Delphi for DotNet , in the future there is a plan for a new version of Delphi for DotNet? Or i need to buy Rad Studio ?

  9. Hmmm. I start D2007 only once a day and while I fetch coffee. I don't really care about the time it takes then. Much more important is the Help: that is really slow and not very accessible (needs more cross refs, more explanation text for functions/procedures, sometimes cannot find stuff found earlier). If you want to attract new users and keep the current onces then that is an area which really screams for improvement !
