We sell a POS package that was developed in Delphi. I understand. Here is some ammo that may be able to used to sway them:
 
o Delphi is a language that has been going through a long painful sunset since it did not become the "Kill-App" for Linux that it was introduced to be.
o Development productivity could be increased several fold with the C# environment.
o C# has several better SDK environments available than Delphi, e.g. VS2010, VS2012, etc.
o C# has an huge number of extensions to accelerate development and eliminate the need to develop many parts of an App. and complete project.
o C# developers are more plentiful than Delphi developer when the project needs more members or needs to replace someone who leaves.
o There are several great inexpensive, proven Delphi to C# translators.
o Delphi still has the Win 95 themes that make it look outdated. C# does not.
o What may be interesting is to take one Delphi App that is not too comprehensive and convert to C# as an experiment. Then give them a report of what it took to do that. Do a demo to let them see how more current it looks, etc.
 
Maybe they will listen if they look at it from a management perspective as well as a technology one.
 
Good luck.
