I scrubbed C++BuilderX off my hard drive. It's not bad, but it's a far cry from being useful. I can't believe that Borland released the product in this state -- whatever the short-term gain in revenue, it will be more than offset by the increased technical-support and post-release bugfix costs, not to mention the loss of developer goodwill (which is something Borland desperately needs right now).

I miss the Borland of the Turbo Pascal and Turbo C++ days. Maybe they should bring Philippe Kahn back!
