Delphi - The basics

Delphi is a very user friendly programming language that I have ever seen. It's based on the Pascal programming language. It's a string typed language which incorporates all the features of oops.

Delphi 2007, the eleventh and latest version, supports the Delphi programming language (Object Pascal and C++ for the 32 bit Microsoft Windows platform, and Delphi and C# for the Microsoft .NET platform.

Delphi is mainly used for the development of desktop and enterprise database applications, but it is a general-purpose software development tool suitable for most software projects.
Delphi is distributed in various versions with different features and prices: Personal, Professional, Enterprise (formerly Client/Server) and Architect. Borland Kylix is equivalent to Delphi for the Linux platform.
