The name on the title bar (once you load it) will say Borland Developer

As I understand it, if you choose a C++ project within BDS you should still
be load and compile Delphi code.
However, I'm not sure if you choose a Delphi project within BDS you can load
and compile C++ code.
Also, Danny Thorpe says we can expect "VCL app development in C++!" (see
) I'm not sure
whether or not this means C++ VCLs will work for Delphi projects. If so,
that would be cool - as more Win32 VCLs could be developed and leveraged by
more users (C++ and Delphi developers alike). I suspect though that VCLs
(for Delphi users) will still need to to be done in Delphi. :-( If this
is true, at least C++ developers can take advantage of the Delphi capability
within the IDE and begin to serve up a new crop of VCL components (that is
if they choose to dabble in Delphi).

The Feature compairson's are skewed based on what personality you are
looking at. I don't thnk it matters which one you buy - you get all the
features for whatever tier you choose (Architect, Enterprise, Pro)
Cool - huh?
