Did you actually read what I wrote? I said "D7 offered a lot to make
you productive." That alone justified the price. Noone forced the
people to buy it, so it must have been of value to those who did.
I never said it did not benefit from D6. There were not many compiler
changes in D7, but quite a few in D6.
And please stop deriding me, since that does not contribute to a
serious discussion. If you want to have un-serious ones, you can have
them in borland.public.off-topic.
