Borland's Folly

Have you heard about the recent announcement made by Borland? They have decided to drop all involvement in IDE production and focus more as a provider of tools that will help optimize code. Why is this important? It means that Borland Delphi is going away, and is a sad day for the faithful who have stuck it out.

I am a Delphi programmer and find it superior to almost all other IDE's I have used. They have always been at the top of the stack and they have legions of developers who love their product. Their compiler has always been the fastest on the market, and their forward thinking caused them to move to Object Oriented Design well before products like Visual Basic.

Let's just hope this is a bad idea that will be corrected.
