I'm pretty handy with Java and can do a lot of things with it. But I've noticed that 2 of my favorite programs are written in Delphi (WealthLab and QuoteTracker). Too bad there's not a good compiled language that has the libraries and ease of programming like Java, and all the libraries of components like Delphi. The one thing holding me back from going on the Delphi bandwagon is its not very commonly used and who knows what Borland is going to do with it. From what I heard a lot of Delphi programmers are unhappy with the last couple of versions of it and Borland seems to want to turn toward the .NET direction. Is there a future for Delphi?
