My >5 favourite things in and about Delphi 2007 for Win32

  1. Support for Vista - see image below. 'Nuff said. 
  2. Tool Palette filtering - It's now a Pos(Filter, Lowercase(ItemName)). So if you type Box, you get TListBox, TComboBox, TGroupBox, and any component that contains the lowercase word box.
  3. IDE startup and shutdown speed - On a Pentium D, 3GHz, 2-core Vista machine, Delphi starts up in < 16 secs the first time, shuts down < 3 secs (disappears from the screen in < 2 secs and from the taskbar manager, another 1-2 secs), and when you start it up again, it takes < 10 secs.
  4. Improved WSDL Importer and WSDL Importer sources - are there any webservices that we cannot import?
  5. Our dedicated and passionate customers - without them, would we have made so much improvements?
  6. > 372 fixes to the product.
  7. My name  in the Alt TEAM easter egg game.

And now... SHAZAM!

I call upon the following Cogs to name their favourites...
