    If you want "Delphi Programming" to show up everywhere because that’s what Tiobe looks for, you could do what Jim McKeeth did and put the phrase in your blog’s basic template somewhere. Then it shows up on every page for free.

    "By the way,I am now making it my personal mission to put the phrase "DelphI Programming" into every one of my blog posts."

    AFAIK it is John Kaster that is in charge of the Embarcadero/CodeGear web site. He could put this marking on all relevant Delphi pages, e.g. in the pages of Delphi (2009) language guide:

    Delphi is climbing up in the TIOBE index and everybody that cares needs to have "Delphi Programming" as descriptions on blogs and any web sites, meta-data, data, … you name it:-)

    Maybe we should tag our answers/questions at Stack Overflow with "Delphi Programming" too?

    I am a bit confused about the Embarcadero Delphi June special

    If you purchase Delphi Pro you get Rad Studio.
    (Does this mean Rad Studio Pro with C++ or Rad Syudio Enterprise?)

    If you buy Rad Studio Enterprise you get Rad Sudio Arch, this is pretty clear)

    Could you clarify the Delphi Pro bonus?

    Rodrigo –

    Yes, Delphi Prism 2011 Pro contains full ADO.NET support.

    Larry –

    If you buy Delphi Pro, you get RAD Studio Pro. That’s the deal as I understand it.

    Hi Nick
    Thanks for the links to moshines blog. Unfortunately, they show me something I find hard to read. See screenshot at:
    If you have a way to contact moshine, maybe you could ask what is happening with that?

    Hi Nick, I’ve written a question on SO that I think will be a great community wiki:

    What is the Delphi component you can’t live without?

    Warren: Are you surprised at all that Nick said "TSmiley"? :P
