As a long-time programmer and novice investor I think people like Rod (in moderation, of course) are a blessing for these types of forums. Had he not written about his lack of enthusiasm for Borland, I probably would not have had the pleasure to read such spirited "pro-Borland" responses which have influenced me not to sell my Borland stock in the near term.

I think we would all agree as investors that the success or failure of Borland as a company rests with how well its customers (i.e. "techies") receive its products. Since most "anti-Borland" investors probably do not read this thread, people like Rod are all we have got to test our convictions: i.e. are Borland products really that good or, because we want to make some money off their stock, do we hope they are?

Borland's spate of new offerings are in beta. Since Borland will live or die by how well these products do in the marketplace, I would encourage anyone who has used them (such as Barry from Byte) to post their opinions, positive or negative. For example, are they stable or buggy, slick or sluggish, lean or bloated?

And, since I would presume Rod has no intention of _buying_ any more Borland products, perhaps someone from Borland can arrange something <g>.
