comment Delphi vs C# for GUI programming
Deployment - total fail. Deplhi requires Windows, so that's a step backwards from C#. C# is portable and multiplatform thanks to Mono. Delphi is not. You don't need to buy Windows to run a program written in C# that doesn't use explicitly Win32 libraries. Simplicity - also failure. C#'s syntax is very easy to read, very concise, and easy to write. Delphi is not. API documentation - hell no! If I write "web service C#" I get tons of relevant results. No such things for Delphi. Speed, threading, especially the debugger - also false.

comment Should I continue to perform freelance work for customers who keep on demanding more without paying?
Thank you for an experienced insight. I don't think it's appropriate to differentiate clients from providers and saying that one is a always a con artist, but your advice really helped. I confronted the customer with this problem in the "will go no further" way, and it got solved immediately. They were either testing me, it was a big misunderstanding, or some vast internal lags in their company.
