Free Borland IDE's Coming Soon?
« on: August 15, 2006, 01:12:15 PM »
From a Borland press release:

"The Turbo product set includes Turbo Delphi® for Win32, Turbo Delphi for .NET®, Turbo C++® and Turbo C#®. Each version will be available in two editions: Turbo Explorer, a free downloadable version, and Turbo Professional, a version priced less than $500 which is designed to accept thousands of available third-party tools, components and plug-ins. All Turbo editions enable developers to rapidly build high performance GUI, Database, Web, and Web Services applications for Microsoft Windows. Turbo Delphi for .NET and Turbo C# support the Microsoft .NET and ASP.NET platforms. More information is available at www.turboexplorer.com."

I'm looking forward to them. But did you know that they have offered free tools for quite some time? They have the personal editions of some of their tools that are free for non-commercial use. However, I am sure that going forward the tools will be free for even commercial use. Eclipse has seen to that. Borland and the other tool makers will still be able to compete in the larger enterprise market where the cost of the initial purchase is only a very small factor when deciding which tools to use.
