One explanation I read is that this is the fault of open source:
This forces the 'big' companies to make software available for free, 
and thus they now run on commercials.

Total nonsense of course; there is simply more money to be made using
commercials than using subscriptions. No-one wants to pay subscription money
for "basic" software.

That's probably also the problem that will kill Delphi faster sooner than
later :(
