Delphi 2005 for .Net

Brad's Delphi Blog – I have been using Delphi for DotNet 2005 full time for a month now. I would love it, I would love all the features but the damn thing locks up so much that it is amost unuseable and I have all three patches on a brand new PC. It is almost enough to move me to Visual Studio. Fix the bugs Borland.
