There are two 'turbo' product lines. Turbo Delphi Professional is effectively Delphi 10 Professional and costs about the same as the single Delphi compilers used to, just a more recent version of Delphi 5 with the same library and component support. It is a cut down version of Borland Developer Studio 2006 which includes lots of .net and c++ stuff you'll probably never want to use. Turbo Delphi Explorer is really Delphi 10 Personal and is free, except it can be used for commercial development but in theory does not support any third party components, unless you patch the code. There's a rumour the hot fixes might fix some of methods people have found to install components in the Explorer version.
