Embarcadero recently released a new version of Delphi: Delphi XE

Trial version can download from Embarcadero web site, Installing this product will download some files from Web, This will take a long time when you Internet connection is slow.

Un-registered Delphi XE can use 14 days, 1 hour each time . Is it worth to upgrading your older version? I don't think so.

What's 'XE' meaning? Here is some answer from Delphi fans:



“x” of Cross Plataform
“e” of Embacadero

x = heterogeneous
e = embarcadero

e(x)treme
(e)arning

Could be:X = 10 (as in 2010)E = Embarcadero

    it’s version 15:

    “X” = 10 in romans
    “E” = 5th character on alphabet


    It’s actually XI

    XI as in Roman ‘11′ for 2011

    Just the advertisers made the obligatory spelling error.


EX:
eXtremely
Expensive

X = numerical 10
E = Extended = supports handheld pda, mobile, web application, cloud computing into one great application Tool = Delphi XE


eXtrEme Creativity!

There is already an XE in the world, namely Oracle XE!

What an excellent creativity to invent again an acronym what already exists for years!

Xenophobic – an irrational, deep-rooted fear of or antipathy towards outsiders
Egomania – an obsessive preoccupation with one’s self
