A question for you Borland die-hards is what's up with the
state of the compiler? Has it stagnated or are new developments
going? I remember applying to be a Borland beta tester some
years ago but it fell on deaf ears, and I never looked back
again. It seems that they don't care. So why should we care?
Don't get me wrong. I used to have a loyalty towards it. I
learned my first Pascal program with their original compiler.
