So just because they dont lie to the world about their compiler it makes it worse than the competition?

Advertising is done to get stuff sold, to make it look better than the competition, rarely is there truth in it. If Borlands compiler is so much better, why do the majority seem to be using VC around here? If Borland is so much better, why do companies that develope for Windows seem to be using VC more than Borland?

All the Bordland users like Metal Typhoon have migrated to the message boards because they can''t program. Why else would he be here?

Hummm.. Hahaha, funny guy. K i don''t know how to program right ? so i gotta use borland and u use vc++. since u KNOW ALOT then uses assembly. Hahahaha, after all u know how to program.. Hahaha. And i think u also meant to say that for all people who use VB and Delphi !!!!

I''m funny, wow, thanks for the comment. Chances are you don''t know how yep. You dont have to use anything you can use whatever you want.Yes I know simple programming but I''m no guru and I am not writing a book, I never said I was. You think I mean to say for all the people who use VB and Delphi, ummm, no. I can say what I want to say for myself and I don''t want you talking for me. Your post proves that you are beyond a dought a moron and should remove yourself from the gene pool immediately. Case closed. Someone should close this post probably. As for me, I''ll be leaving now, bye!

Your answer is simple and with a question to think about , WHY MOST OF THE PEOPLE USE WINDOW AND NOT LINUX ?

See look this way. Windows was created great , now it''s been sold and 2001 now people don''t like microsoft anymore. They want to put them down. Vc++ was created , now it''s been sold and 2001 now people still like it. WILL IT FOLLOOW THE LAST STEP ? FALL DOWN ? hummm... seems pretty much that it will since it''s from the so hated MICROSOFT right ?

Tell me why we should use assembly when we can get the same results using C++ and not having to spend nearly as much time. Only very time critical pieces of code need to be hand coded in assembly, and even then its quite easy to actually make it slower if you dont know what you''re doing.

I have yet to see a reason from you on why people should be using Borland for game programming. Nobody needs any of those features that VC "supposedly" doesnt have to code games.

"Borland is better because Borland''s web site says so". Hmm ....

Because it has greater compatibility and does what they want perhaps? Because they dont have the time to download linux? There are different reasons why people use different operating systems.

Big Mac Vs Whopper, Coke Vs Pepsi, and Microsoft Vs Borland.
People its all a matter of preference. Use what ever compiler or api that gets the job done better for "you" and stop trying to impose something on someone else. If people can program then they "should" have the logic reasoning to figure out what is the best tool for them.

As Always do what ever makes you happy, hell even program in cobol if it floats your boat.

How does Borland make life better? It adds a couple features that would never be used in developing a game.

VC has MFC for tools (VC DOES have visual design of dialogs/forms/whatever you call them), and for the actual game code you have your code editor. You dont need RAD for game development, nor do you need all that fancy database or "Drop-in Internet Protocol Components". We have DirectPlay and WinSock instead for that. We dont need XML in our games, nor ISAPI and CGI, nor any language translation tools.

So these features that supposedly make Borland better would go completely unused anyway.

VC++ and Bordland can''t do anything the other can''t do for a game, it all depends on the skill of the programmer. Did you ever hear of ridilin and did you ever tell your parents thankyou for feeding you even thought your such a stupid person?

Ummm, because Borland users have horrible grammar and can''t spell words like ''why'' because they are so ''133t''.

btw, GCC all the way.
