Delphi vs. C

Hi
A pretty lame coworker of mine said that C is a better programming language than Delphi. The guy isn't a programmer so it should be easy to make him eat his words again hehe :)
so please help me and give me some good arguments to help me on my mission.

Also name some great applications written in Delphi, Windows Commander for instance.

these arguments are so pointless..there is no "better" language .

write two notepad style apps as simple as can be.
write both in delphi make them identical except give one a different icon then tell friend one was wrote in vc or cbuilder and one was wrote in delphi and ask him which one is better and why,i be he wont know the difference .

is french better than mongolian ?

anyway they both are useless compared to the power of vb :~)

I have written good programs in both languages.
It think C has the more interesting (!) language features.
Pascal is easier to learn (it was designed that way).
C makes you learn the concept of a pointer.
With Pascal you code fewer bugs because of the stricter language.
That was never a problem for me because i already programmed with strict discipline in C. Applying that to my Pascal was not bad.

So my conclusion is: i currently prefer Pascal and miss some nice tricks i could implement in C.
