don't forget JEDI, a huge collection of open source components for delphi/bcb:

Project JEDI is an international non-profit organization, which was formed in an effort to expedite the process of making emerging Windows technologies available to the Delphi development community. Comprised of a team of programmers, beta testers, documentation specialists and web designers, Project JEDI has a clear and unrelenting mandate: to provide Delphi developers with timely access to Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), libraries and any other facilities which extend the capability of the Delphi programming environment.
