Marketing to VB 6 Users[edit | edit source]

Idea suggested by Richard Grossman in the Delphi Newsgroups:

 Time to move up?  Sure, you did some great things in VB, 
 but sometimes you had to work too hard, too long, and then 
 a version upgrade would break your code.
 Did you know that 16 bit-programs written in 1994 in Borland 
 Delphi 1, had no problems compiling for win32 in Delphi 2 
 and will still compile in Delphi 2009 as either Win32 or .NET?
 Maybe it's time you maximized your hard-earned effort in 
 building technique, reusable libraries, and hand-coded 
 Maybe it's time you moved up to Borland's Delphi 2009.
 We promise not to try to take your VB away from you... 
 RAD Studio 2009 even supports editing code, 
 but you just might find yourself fulfilling new 
 requirements in Delphi.
 Delphi is easy as VB and powerful as C++
 Borland Delphi 2009... there IS a better way (tm).
