An article on CodeGear by Kathleen Richards "Second Life, Second Chance for CodeGear", published by Redmond Developer News, provides an interesting analysis of the status of the company. The subtitle tells a lot more about the content:

Can Delphi thrive now that it's free from corporate parent Borland?

The article has a good summary of recent events (the spin off and the like), has an case study (by Charles Vinal, of Euclid Technology), and focuses on the current status of Delphi. In the section titled "Native Strengths" you can read:

"Many developers argue that Delphi's tooling for native code, despite no support for Unicode and 64-bit compilers, still surpasses what's offered in Visual Studio."

Beside misspelling a name ("Craig Stintz"?) and being a little generic, I think the article is worth reading. Not that I fully agree with it, though. The section on open source, for example, is a very light analysis.

PS. I'll remove ASAP the SnapShots that 100% of the people who posted a feedback message said they don't like!

PS2. I would be interesting to see how many searches get misdirected by the title "Second Life" of this post.
