Delphi IDE - Why .Net?
2007-06-22 12:40:17 PM
Maybe this has been answered before, or maybe I have no idea on the subject
(quite possible <g>), but I have just been reading through the "Downgrading to
D7" thread with some interest. (As I am using Delphi 7 and was considering
upgrading to D2007)...
From what I can gather, many Delphi developers appear to be developing for
the Win32 platform, and it seems that .NET still has some things to prove in
order to convince many to change over. From what I can gather todate, it
contains bugs, and performance issues (over the native Win32 platform).
So - (if this is correct), why did Borland opt to go with .Net for the
Delphi IDE platform? It seems to me that maybe some of the issues (such as
performance, and maybe bugs (?) might have something to do with the fact
that Dxxxx runs on a .NET platform, instead of the native Win32 platform.
Not trying to throw sticks and stones, just trying to understand (as I'm
thinking that I have missed something here, and would like to catch up <g>)
