    I dont know about other people, but when I started programming TP for DOS was all that was available to me, so I had to make due. And now its what Im used to, so why switch? (Plus I think TPW will only create crappy 16bit gui apps...I could be wrong though since Ive never actually used it).

    Like I said, Ive never used TPW. But since it was made back in the era of Windows 3.1, and then dropped, I would assume it will only create 16bit apps. Not until Delphi came around could you create 32bit apps that I know of.

    And by GUI apps, I mean (from what Ive heard) you cant compile dos applications with it. So those 2 limitations together mean you can only create 16big GUI apps. And if you think back to the days of Windows 3.1, they werent pretty.

    TPW was a pretty good product, i have it sitting around somewhere on one of my cds :)

    its IDE is like that of borland C++, and it compiled nice gui apps, it used the win16 api, and it still works for windows

    if you want a windows pascal product, get dev-pascal from bloodshed.net, its a great ide and it uses the 32 bit free pascal compiler
