Delphi Live!

I just opened up a poll (you can view it on the sidebar), to see how many readers of this blog will be attending Delphi Live! I'll be there at least one day giving talks and milling around.

New Embarcadero Website for All-Access

All-Access was launched yesterday and the Embarcadero website got a nice looking face lift. I feel like we are a whole lot hipper than before. It looks like we are a bunch of rock stars! Or we are going to start selling iPods.

The halls are buzzing with excitement with All-Access. This really is the tool chest for developers. It won't appeal to everyone but the people it does appeal to will really like it.

Windows 7 on Mac

I've been running Windows 7 under VMWare Fusion on my Mac Pro without a problem for a few days now. VMWare doesn't give you the option for Windows 7, but choosing Vista from the install wizard worked just fine. I do run into one issue. When running Windows 7 and I eject the DVD-ROM drive with the eject button on the keyboard, the same button should suck the drive tray back in but it doesn't.

I think Windows 7 will be what Windows 95 was to Windows 3.1. The rumor mill has it that Windows 7 will ship before the August timeout date of the public beta. The beta is so rock solid it wouldn't surprise me.

If anyone is having any Windows 7 issues with Delphi 2009 or C++Builder 2009 please post a comment. I've been running without a hitch.
