Delphi is the grown-up version of Borland's Object Pascal.  Think of it 
as Visual Studio for Pascal.  It was a very cool product, with a great 
IDE and a wonderful class library for writing GUI apps.  I was a 
steadfast Delphi zealot from versions 1 through 5, but when I got hooked 
on Python I drifted away, and I haven't looked back.

Delphi doesn't come with Python in the box, but it's very easy to add 
packages, and there are lots of places to download them.  Essentially 
one DLL gives you a Python engine within your Delphi application.
