I''m just wondering, since this is all things Borland really, who here is a Delphi Programmer? I kinda notice that this forum gets a bit quite from time to time. Saves on clutter, but still would be nice to have a bigger community for us Delphi Veterans.

I use Delphi for many years now (4 or 5 years) i started at Delphi 1 and went trough many versions and now I "stopped" at the very good version 6... Definetly I'm not going to Delphi 7, I'm waiting for Delphi 8 the so called Octane...

I use Delphi 6 which is my tool of choice... I also use Blitz 3D to make 3D appz (nice too )

I''ve been using Delphi for years now. I first got a free copy of Delphi 1 from a PC magazine disc. I soon bought a copy of Delphi 3 Professional, and later Delphi 5.

I have got both version 3 and 5 installed, but version 5 is my choice for new projects. I only use version 3 to review my older projects, or do some special testing that requires the older stuff. I will purchase more versions of Delphi, when I get the money, hopefully getting the money by selling software that I write using Delphi 5

I have been working on several different kinds of projects using Delphi, everything from the simplest of CD autorun menus, to the complexity of scripting and other low-level work.

I will eventually move on to using C/C++ as well, but my guess right now is that I will still be turning to Delphi, even while using C/C++.

It''s good to see that there''s a seperate part of this forum, just for Borland/Inprise product users.

Thumbs up for Delphi

Hey, I guess it''s only fair that I put my version preference on here too. Delphi 5 Standard(Most active with my DelphiX powered games) and Delphi 7 Enterprise(My new development platform once I am able to transfer all my code to support what I''m doing in DelphiX to the XCESS SDK).

Cyberium: Why C/C++? I''m sure there are alot of reasons, but I''m just curious.

Anyone here use Kylix before? I have not but I have heard a ton of good things about it.

I use Delphi 7 Personal. Previously I have used Delphi 6 Personal, Delphi 4 Standard and Delphi 2 Enterprise, all of which came on magasine cover discs. I have also got Kylix 3 Open Edition, but it kinda sucks in comparison with the newer versions of Delphi really.

As Alimonster didn''t quite say, DGDev is the Delphi Games Development site.

I use Delphi 5 Standard. I would upgrade, but a lack of money is a problem and I like an uncrippled IDE. I''ll probable upgrade when Delphi for .Net comes out.

I''m currently involved in writing a expresssion Watch plugin for Innerfuse Pascal Script 3, but it is currently stalled due to uni work and other personal projects. I''ve also written a few other utilities for IFPS3 too, but my Unit parser which imports a Delphi Unit into the scripting engine is out of data, and I plan to upgrade it when I find the time (ie not soon).
