Given Borland's announcement of its intent to exit the development tools business, REAL Software announced today that all Borland Delphi® users can receive a free license for REALbasic 2006 for Windows Standard Edition through February 28, 2006. Delphi users can sign up at http://www.realsoftware.com/delphi.

"REAL Software focuses exclusively on the developer tools market," stated Geoff Perlman, president and CEO of REAL Software. "We understand the stress and concern that plague developers when their development tool is terminated. REALbasic continues to reflect the efforts of our company's sole focus on building the best possible rapid application development tools. We welcome Borland Delphi users to our powerful, object-oriented environment for creating cross-platform software that really works."

"At our annual meeting of resellers last year, we actually listed Borland's shifting focus from the ISV market to corporate IT as one of the main reasons for our decision to transition to REALbasic," stated Doug Lyman, president and CEO of AltaPoint Data Systems, provider of cross-platform electronic medical records (EMR) applications. "We switched from Delphi to REALbasic for its powerful cross-platform development capabilities."

Delphi users will appreciate the similarity of REALbasic's language and IDE. REALbasic is an object-oriented programming environment with similar controls. A comparison of REALbasic and Delphi is available at http://www.realsoftware.com/users/delphi.

This special offer from REAL Software is good through February 28, 2006. Delphi users can get more information and REALbasic 2006 Standard Edition for Windows and six months of updates for free, by visiting http://www.realbasic.com/delphi.
