The Turbos are back

According to an interview with DavidI, Borland will bring back the Turbo tools.

David Intersimone, vice president of developer relations and chief evangelist at Borland, said 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 at less than $500, he said.

Borland will offer more information at, which is yet to go online.

This is a very exciting move. I think that in the long-term this will generate lots of interest in the DevCo products.

Good move!

Just visited the site, and they do have some information up now. According to the press release, the Turbo products will be available in 3Q 2006.

My question is this - should I get these products or Delphi 2006 Pro? I am working on moving over a Win32 DLL to the .Net platform using Delphi 2005 currently.

I don't find any info anywhere about what differs between the Turbo products and the "regular" ones.. It think Borland is VERY unclear about this which I think is really unprofessional..

The Turbo xxx Professionals are the same as the BDS Professionals, just one personality instead of four.

The Turbo xxx Explorer are the same again, however, you cannot change the tool palette components. These are as is.

No. With DS Pro you can use all four personalities (D-Win32, D.NET, C++ and C#). With the Turbo Professionals you are only to use one personality
