Borland's new "Turbo" compilers

P: n/a
Recently Borland has been hyping its new line of RADs called "Turbo" as
an ultimate tool for beginning programmers. Are these products really
match for Microsoft's "Visual Studio"?

Interesting reuse of an old marketing name. the original Borland
compilers were the "turbo" series...back in the early 90s.

Back in those days the "turbo" compilers were a better choice than the M$
tools of that era.

When I tried Turbo Delphi a couple of weeks ago, I really liked it. I
have switched to using it for my personal projects.

I haven't tried the new Turbo C++ yet, but if it's anything like Turbo
Delphi, I would definitely recommend trying it.

I examined it a bit a few weeks ago. I'm sticking with VC++ because the
code folding is so much better.

'90s? I was using Turbo Pascal v3 in 1987. I think v1 came out in '84
or '85.
