Dear sir Beginners DON'T CREATE COMPLEX COMMERCIAL APPS You need freedom for create not "artificial" restrictions. Another tools like Trolltech QT have two licenses modes and two 'packages'

The beginners are not expected to be creating complex applications needing third party components with the 'free' version, they are expected to buy Turbo Professional, which is essentially the same price and concept as Delphi 6 and 7 Professional, before it got bloated with .net stuff and other languages as Borland Development Studio. > Who pays for those marketing guys?? Microsoft? If you could create complex commercial applications with the 'free' version, few people would buy Delphi, and the marketing guys would not get paid. Borland only has it's tools revenue to survive. Microsoft hands out Express versions of it's .net tools, probably because it knows few people would otherwise buy them. It does not provide Win32 tools free. And of course it has a few billion dollars of OS revenue to subsidise these Express tools. Personally, I think Borland should have limited the 'free' version in the number of components on a form, or forms in a project, or similar, so that only simple applications can be created.
