Yeah, AFAIK a 'preview' could be downloaded for CBX. I never tried it myself
though so I can't be sure.
The thing is, its hard to speculate as to whether it has a chance of
competing against MS's compiler given its 'preview' nature. No has any idea
whatsoever as to what Borland is going to offer, whats its going to be like
and when it might surface.
IMO unless Borland come out with something dazzlingly impressive on the
compiler front, MS will win any compiler wars hands down. If Borland brings
out something that is only 'as good' as the MS compiler, past experience has
shown that it will stay that way.
This isn't a huge deal for me, I don't need the best optimising compiler
thats the most standards compliant. I just need a compiler that gets the job
done, and makes it easier on me to get the job done.
