I was rather surprised at the comments to my last post. Some were pretty heated. Delphi developers are extremely protective of their baby, but I knew that already. I didn’t actually think my post was that provocative, but perhaps it was.
A good number commented that what has been released so far is only the tip of the iceberg, and that beta testers were not allowed to reveal more yet. That’s all well and good, but I can only comment on what I have seen. When more is revealed, I no doubt will add further comments.
Actually, I never said 2010 sucks. I just said that I’m not that excited yet. I didn’t say others wouldn’t be excited. I just said that I, personally, in my humble opinion, need more than IDE changes to get my blood stirring.
Each release of Delphi Prism excites me for example. They seem to be forever adding little goodies to the compiler. Perhaps it’s easier to do with the .NET platform?
