It looks like the recent preview of RAD Studio XE didn’t met expectations of many developers resulting in a massive popular outrage.

Beleive it or not, but ranting and shouting will not change anything about the upcoming release. I suggest to calm down and start talking decently with each other.

Obviously the people at Embarcadero have something to explain and just missed the point to do it properly in advance. That might have been the wrong way, but honestly, we are all human and talking about bad news is nothing we are keen to do.

So be generous. Imagine you were in their position. Let DavidI and Mike Rozlog take a breath, wait what they have to say and then decide on the information you get.

Staying with Delphi or going away is no decision that has to be done today or tomorrow. It should neither be done during a heated situation like we have now.

After all we are still developers. We are used to tackle a problem with logic instead of speculating and ranting. I am not aware of any bug that has been fixed by shouting at it.

There is something going wrong, no question. Lets start a debugging session and find out what it is and how to fix it.
