Switching to .NET from Borland C++ Builder/Delphi?

P: n/a
Hi,

my company has developed logistics solutions with the Borland developer
product C++ Builder and Delphi. We are considering a switch to .NET with C#.
The following issues are important to us:

* Installer file size (this will be larger since it must include the .NET
framework, right?)
* OS support. Will there be .NET support on Win95/98?
* Drivers and components for the Nexus database engine.
* What is the best way to use some of the existing code in a .NET framework?
COM objects with previously written business logic? Other ways to
incorporate old code?

We were thinking about creating a new solution in .NET and slowly move our
other products to .NET depending on time and demand.

Any other considerations we need to look at? Any experiences with such a
move?

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!

Cheers,
Trygve

You might find this link helpful, especially the series of articles
entitled "Head-Spinning". Personally I favour the COM model - a nice
clean separation. I've no idea about the relative performance of the
alternatives.
