Borland + 3rd Party vs. DOT NET
Posted on 2002-06-19
First of all, please don't answer if you emotionaly support one of the products.
I am asking this question because of a decision I have to make. So I am offering 1500 points to a serious answer. The system allows me only 500 at a time.
Question: Can Borland C++ Enterpise with all the bells and whisles with some *NIX server do what MS .NET framework and .NET server can do?
Or, here's another way of puting it. Is it possible to build a suite of non-MS products to be comparable or better than MS .NET with Borland C++ Builder and MS Visual C++ in center-points?
Main conserns are:
1. Development and delivery, 80% of the decision
2. Cost, 20%
