Show me one developer that doesn't think that. :) I haven't met any yet.

No, from commercial companies I worked for in the past - where Delphi
based projects have been in development of many years (eg: started with
D3 and upgraded as Delphi got released) and gone through stacks of
developers as they come and go.

Here is the result of just one such case... You often end up with this
after a 15 year development cycle.

What is "tiOPF designer"?

I understand my code just fine. :) I have also built up a "developers
toolbox" over the years which includes tons of code snippets, code
templates, template projects, template forms etc. Simply copy it in, do
a rename here or there, and away I go. This saves me stacks of time and
it 'just works' too. ;-)

But hey, we are seriously straying off-topic. Better stop here before I
get band from the mailing lists again.
