Happy Birthday AppBuilder^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H Delphi

Kylix T-Shirts…

The Wiert Corner – Russel Weetch last week posted a few pictures of Kylix related T-Shirts (wow, I had forgotten that Kylix was released back in 2000!) about Living la vida Linux.

Hopefully Embarcadero will publish official guidelines to make the IDE High DPI aware…

The Wiert Corner – With the common-place of High DPI it is surprising the IDE hasn’t gotten more love in this respect.
