In fact it is useless, but please keep on reading! Part is that pro and not pro developpers are discussed but not circumstances. For example if I have to maintain an application written in Delphi 1..4 then customar will pay for D7 upgrade. But I'm speaking on a "normal" customar. Some time back I hade a very very large project for the gouverment. I think it is 2..3 year back. And it has to work on windows 3.11.... It was for me have it or trow a very lot of money away, and I'm not speaking of commercial references for that project. Large projects for gouverment done feels good for representatives ! So I re-installed Delphi 1 for it :) About Delphi upgrades, I know a lots of amateurs programming for hobby that does lots faster Delphi upgrades than me (BTW: I'm really pro :) because they have more time than me for these things. About the components. I think older compilers may be dropped, at certain moment, only people have to be warned that they dont do a fresh upgrade into their older compilers if they need it. --- Rgds, Wilfried http://www.mestdagh.biz -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
