Got the Turbos! Go get 'em!


(Many thanks to nick hodges, for the warning label!)

Got the new Turbos!
Thanks Borland! for taking the first step, even if it has been way too late.
Turbo Delphi available for free (open source) is a great thing!
Hope and pray, it brings back the spirit of delphi and wish to see it being used widely!

and now to my first run of turbo delphi!
#1. I Sorely miss the 'Alt VC', to get a quick the list of components. I have to get used to the other shortcuts for quick access.
#2. The UI is okie, but not alike the D7 (oldie days!)
#3. Ran into a few crashes - mostly with the IDE. Missed to get the screen shots though! :(
#4. Yet to check adding up new components / controls and check out the limitations.
#5. Some of the demo's had issues with missing components! Need to dig to find the cause!

I somehow get a feeling that the IDE is bloated and not sure if i can attribute that to anything other than .Net!
need to check out the camtasia demos!, by nick hodges.
i think i should create a single .iso, out of the camtasia videos by nick. (when am free, of course!)

there is a nice review of turbo explorer on pcmag here!(though but a short one!) and more on bitwise magazine!

PS: oh yeah! the final dialog of the installation mentions to keep downloading the updates (.net / windows)!
Ironic. Got a smile (cynical) to my face!
go get 'em!
