the components on the pallette the Pro version has.
But, even though a component is not on the pallette, it can still be
instantiated in code, so the Personal D7 is no less powerful than the Pro
It was offered for free (after I paid for mine, but after a looksee, I
bought the Pro version too ) for awhile along with the Turbo versions.
It is worth a look to see if it is a viable migration away from MS though.
I didn't have a deep investment in VB5/6 in the form of any large commercial
apps like so many others here, so it didn't pain me to actually start using
Delphi, even though I had two previous Delphi versions starting with D1, for
the bulk of my work.
Notwithstanding, the context of the OP is an egregious departure from
topical content in the manner presented..
