First Link i cannot open, second Link works here good.

Nice Bedtime Story, that way i felt when i upgraded my Delphi 7 installation (150mb?) to Rad Studio Tokyo (12gb?). I skipped updates over a huge amount of time ending with a result that Delphi 7 Compiler needs 350kb for a empty VCL Application while Tokyo outputs 2mb for the same identical source with identical look/function.

You can love it or hate it, the world doesnt care about.
For myself i try to keep things small, but for that task i use the wrong programming language (VCL makes everything beauty and big :-[)


Have a nice day.
sorry bad english and Delphi are my hobby ;)
politeness is not one of my strengths in writing, just because it sounds rough doesn't mean that I mean it rough.

The cynic in me thinks it's all a part of the planned obsolescence of computer hardware. How else is Apple going to convince everyone to update every year? Or Verizon getting people to upgrade every 2 years? Or X getting everyone to upgrade every Y years?
