    Thanks for sharing this. I was always impressed with Delphi. I believe the original Skype client was written in Delphi. This was a nice fun read for a Friday afternoon.

      Not really a Delphi / Pascal person, but I loved C++Builder, which leveraged the VCL controls. I even have a page (not updated since 2005!) full of links to C++Builder & VCL pointers:

      http://www.buddydog.org/C++Builder/c++builder.html

      Actually surprised there doesn’t seem to be a ‘delphi’ or at least a ‘pascal’ tag.

        Is there a good write up anywhere that goes into detail on what the VCL was? I’m curious if there are some interesting ideas in there that haven’t been re-implemented in modern systems.

          No idea! VCL still is something!
