Borland Developer Studio - from a Visual Studio user's pov...
"At last the Developer Studio debugger is as good as the Visual Studio equivalent... but the number of tools available to a developer is smaller in Developer Studio... The chief benefit of the Borland product is that it has a language– Pascal - with which you can tackle both .NET and COM/Win32 applications..."

Borland Developer Studio 2006 :: the Bitwise review
"In common with Visual Studio 2005, the Borland Developer Studio can create .NET applications. But, unlike Visual Studio, it also provides a full set of editing, design and debugging tools for Win32 applications. And best of all, it is even possible to create‘cross-platform’ Windows applications that that can be compiled either for Win32 or for .NET. This is one show-stopping trick which Microsoft customers can only dream of…!"

Bitwise Editorial #8
"I really don’t understand what Microsoft is up to. In many respects, .NET has huge advantages over the ‘old style’ Win32 programming with its variety of incompatible languages and class libraries (VB, Delphi’s VCL, the MFC - not forgetting Microsoft’s short-lived Visual J++ and the Windows FoundationClasses framework). But what Microsoft has not yet established is a good reason for developers to scrap their existing code in order to switch to .NET..."

In memory of Elizabeth Parcells
It is with great sadness that I pass on the news of the death of the soprano, Elizabeth Parcells, whose web site is featured in this month's Rants and Raves column. Her brother informs me that she died on the 30th of December 2006 after two and a half years of battling against cancer. My deepest sympathy goes out to her family and friends.
