I'm going to apologize for taking this even further off-topic, but, if 
the OP is looking at Delphi, he should know that Borland provides a
version of Delphi, called Turbo Delphi Explorer, that you can download and 
use for free.  We also offer a priced "Professional" version, but for the 
OP's interests, the Explorer edition will probably work just fine.


Full disclosure: I say "we" above, because I *am* affiliated with Borland: 
I'm Borland's in-house attorney for intellectual property and product 
matters.  (What's an attorney doing on a Python list?  I was a developer 
before I was an attorney, and still play around a little bit here and 
there, and I usually use Python when I do.)
