Episode 50

For the 50th Episode of the Podcast at Delphi.org it has been decided that the tables should be turned on Jim and that he should be answering questions instead of asking them!

As such we would like any and all questions that you might have for Jim, on his development philosophies, his role with RemObjects Software and indeed anything else you may care to ask.

I want you to ask Jim . . .

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

        • Can Oxygen become a stand alone compiler?

          Can/Will Oxygen ever be able to come out of the shadows of .NET and become a stand along compiler?

          • Why did RemObjects ever develop Oxygen a Pascal variant?

            I am curious to know as to why did RemObjects ever develop Oxygen as a Pascal variant?

            Of course I have not used Oxygen beyond beta but I observed that it is adding many features that an average Pascal/Delphi developer will not want in a compiler?

            • Who's more likely to be around in 10 years, Delphi or Oxygene, and why?

              Once Embarcadero figures out that selling "enterprise services to leverage synergistic opportunities" brings in more money than developing a good IDE, Delphi will be discontinued the same day. Nobody will notice, because the only alive developers that are still using Delphi have alzheimer and/or are retired.

              Oxygene will slowly turn into C#. Begin/end will be dumped in favor of curly braces to achieve 100% source-compatibility with C# instead of Delphi pascal.

              The question is: which of these two will occur first?
