Embarcadero is trying to move all existing Delphi users to Delphi XE Enterprise, by offering a rather good deal. You can upgrade from XE Professional (which is generally not allowed), you can upgrade at a 500 USD/Euro discounted price from older versions, and you can upgrade (for this month only) also from very old versions (giving you another 500 USD/Euro off compared to the full version).

So if you have, say, Delphi 7, you can migrate to Delphi XE Enteprise at half the normal price. Which makes it quite nice. Of course, on top of the product you'd probably need soem good documentation, like my "Collection of Delphi Handbooks" merging together my books on 2007, 2009, and 2010. Buy it and I'll get you an extra section on Delphi XE for free (hopefully soon).

We did metnion this offer over the last two days in Bergamo and Bologna (where 50 + 50 Delphi developers, most on old versions, gathered for a free event) and they were indeed quite interested. Some also asked about giving the Starter Edition to student who occasionally contribute with them on minor projects. More info on the Upgrade Amnesty at http://www.embarcadero.com/radspecial and on the XE Enterprise Upgrade Special Prices at http://www.embarcadero.com/radoffer.
