Although I’m not doing any serious development in Delphi for at least 2-3 years, I’m still very fond of it. Anyway it never made for the “web 2.0” era of development.
Without a complete renewal and probably a dual license schema (like Qt) I don’t think it will ever manage to revives again.
My personal take is that this is its requiem, Embarcadero will further cut the developing and will replace it as a convenient db-related tool.
But I sincerely hope to be mistaken about it.
Good Luck Delphi!
