Is Delphi still the No. 1 RAD ? (Need to write a networking application)

I used Delphi from version 1 to 7. I still maintain some projects in Delphi 5 and 7.
I got the 2007 trial and looks nice. I'm starting to write a little application that is a sort of IM software, and I started to experiment it in C# VS 2005. I like the C# network libraries a lot.
But doing it in C# implicate the extra hassle of people having to install .Net Framework 2.0.

Now, if I write it in Delphi, which are my options for networking components? Is Indy still the only free solution?
I don't even remember if Delphi has native Sockets class in the VCL.

Please, advise.
