Just curious, has anyone given any thought to using Delphi/Kylix for this
type of work? It avoids virtually all of the pitfalls inherent in C/C++
while giving excellent (compiled) performance and extensive control. I
have found that it significantly reduces development time when compared to
any other language I've worked in. Plus, now that it is available for
Linux your not limited to hardware Windows runs on.
