I use Delphi regularly. On Delphi XE7 these days.

I still don't see any of the other popular IDEs deliver the same blinding-fast compile time and self-contained EXEs. Deployment is true xcopy-deployment with no runtime dependencies other than Win32. So for me it delivers great value.

I will however agree on the pricing issue. Major reason why I don't upgrade the IDE often Smile | :) . Embarcadero releases a new version every year or so, but I find it harder and harder to see what's new. At least they are still working on the product.

One application I maintain is built using Delphi 7 (from 2002). The EXEs still work flawlessly on Windows 10 - even look like proper Windows 10 applications. That may be more a testimony to how well MS backwards compatibility works, but still...
