Like the earlier Kylix offering, Borland now has, for download, Delphi 6 Personal Edition.  You can find it here: http://www.borland.com/delphi/personal/ .

WoW!
Very Cool...
Thanx Edey :-)

I hope you can write freeware with it?
It says -non commercial- so I'm hoping that
giving away free software with source is considered
to be OK :-)

To me non-commercial just means you cant charge money for the product (except maybe if you distribute it on CD, you can recoup the cost of that and charge like $1).  But their definition may be different I guess.

It doesnt explicity say the program must be licensed under the GPL like Kylix: OE does, so I dont think you have to give away your source as well.  I do anyway so thats not a big deal even if I have to :-)

Hi MannSoft :-)
  I guess I will give away my exe's I make with D6P until and unless I find a clear statement that says "You can't distribute freeware" :-)
  I will probably include a blurb somewhere saying I made it with D6P and showing the url where the user could dl it herself"
  I usually include source code anyway... although sometimes it's so embarrassing :-)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I agree - there doesn't seem to be anything the states you _have_ to GPL the stuff, though it might be a good idea.  I havn't sold binaries in a while - releasing source sure has taught me a thing or two :).

I guess as this q has "scrolled" past the front page it's time to close it up.

I wouldn't mind hearing what others have done with the thing though.
