BDS and Turbo editions ...

Will Turbo editions and BDS editions continue to co-exist (progressing with
the same pace), or will the new Turbo editions completely replace the BDS
edition and the BDS line (where all compilers are inside one IDE) be
discontinued after version 2006?
If they will co-exist (BDS with all compilers and IDEs as personalities;
Turbos as a single-compiler editions), will the compilers which ship in the
Turbo editions be identical with same-personality compilers used in the
"same version" BDS edition? For example, will the compiler in Turbo C++ 2007
for Win32 be the same one that ships with the C++ personality of BDS 2007?
So ... if my applications compile under BDS Pro 2007 using the C++
personality, will they also compile with Turbo C++ Pro 2007?
Thank you!

Possibly. Time will tell.

Absolutely not. The Turbo editions is a cut-down version of BDS Pro. Do you
think Borland is going to just dump all Architect specific features?

Yes, and also in Turbo C++ Explorer (not just Pro).

From all the talk on delphi hour and so forth turbo pro <personality>
is no different to running the personality specific link for bds. So, I
dont see why it wouldnt.
I also see the individual personalities as an additional rather than
replacement for bds, for companies who need more than one personality,
bds seems good.

The BDS editions will not be replaced, multi-language packages are of great
value to many customers.

Currently that is the case. In a post by Micael Swindell it was indicated
that this *might* not hold true in future - IOW DevCo is keeping their
options open at the moment - they might continue to simply be one language
editions of BDS, or its possible that the feature set might diverge in
future with BDS getting some features not offered to Turbo.
If the latter case, there are all kinds of possible variations. I would
expect, in order to keep their ability to maintain the different editions
with as little overhead as possible, the Turbo editions would be *capable*
of whatever is in the Pro edition, but with certain features simply not
enabled or shipped.
