"the agency singled out French hoster OVH and American giant GoDaddy as increasingly tardy"

You mean the French hoster whose IP adresses turned up many a time whenever a spam email slipped through the filters at my ISP and webhost? That French hoster? I don't believe it!

I remember TeamB. And the rather interesting Inprise period.

It's a shame to see what's happening to Delphi, ie, being ruined by the beancounters.

Re: Embarcadero is priced too high for developers .

The whole "you need a maintenance contract if you want to use the product you already paid for" thing happened to me. So here I am, stuck with an expensive piece of software (Delphi 2009 Professional) I can no longer use.

Needless to say, there is no chance in hell that greedy lot at Embarcadero / Idera / Or whoever owns Delphi at the time of writing will ever see any of my money again.
