Running Delphi from Win NT...

Is it possible to run Delphi Developer 2.0 from Win NT ? Is this recommended, or is it a slow alternative?
Thanx!

I have been using Delphi 2.0 on WinNT for 2 years and use it in time critical messaging applications. There is no harm, go on and use it.
The only fake is that, some API header files can not be found for pascal in the early days (for example security and crypto API) But they are available now.

SO, DO NOT HESITATE, USE IT,

Some API's work differently on NT. For example, it is more complex to shut down NT then to shut down 95, different routines.

Yes, ronit is right.

(By the way excuse me ronit, I just write what I thought and send as an aswer without noticing you have a comment already.)

For example, setting the system time is a painful experience for the beginners. But security is a very good thing man! If you want to develop a program both runs on NT and 95 you should be carefull. But, for example, at home, I have both NT and 95. I use 95 for playing DirectXed games and NT for developing projects. The choice is yours but I,humbly ,  recommend you to use WinNT as a programming environment. By the way we are here for your questions on any platform.

Just don't forget also to increase memory RAM. NT 'eats' more memory.
