Hi Roman,

I did consider Delphi before starting work on pgAdmin II. The problem with
it is that I can't easily get the Borland tools - they are costly and not
easy for me to justify to my FD. The code I write here has no real
size/speed problems as we have fairly quick PCs across the network. We also
get the MS tools for very reasonable prices as we are a not-for-profit
organisation.

Privately, justifying the cost to my wife would be, ummm, impossible!

That basically means that anything I'm involved in either needs to be
written using MS or open source/freeware tools...

Regards, Dave.
