[CoMoDev] Delphi anyone?

I know we have at least one or two Delphi developers out there, in the closet 
or otherwise.  Note: I don't do Delphi myself but some of my best friends do. 

There's been a pretty good Delphi environment for Palm OS for quite a while out 
there called PocketStudio.   I've heard from at least one guy that it is good 
and from the web site it sounds nice: http://www.winsoft.sk/pstudio.htm.  The 
new news, though, is that Delphi .NET (that alone was news to me!) now supports 
the .NET Compact Framework:  http://www.msmobiles.com/news.php/3755.html

While I'm on the subject, back on the Palm side there is a well-regarded set of 
VCL components and Delphi classes for developing HotSync conduits called 
TurboSync: http://www.tabdee.ltd.uk/Downloads/TurboSync.html  FWIW, Jim Cooper, 
the guy who developed this is an all around great guy who from what I've seen 
goes out of his way to help folks with conduit issues.  Conduit development is 
*not* the easiest part of the Palm OS, though enthusiasts tell me that 
everything is better on Delphi.  <shrug>

It's ok. In CoMoDev we have a "don't ask, don't tell" policy so no one has to 
know what you do in the privacy of your own compiler!  

(Note: if you're "out" as a Delphi developer I don't want you flaming me or 
going on some Pascalian rampage that I'd probably agree with anyway.  I'm just 
having a little fun with you! :-)
