comment What happened to Borland Delphi?
I don't think you have the data to say "Delphi usage is definitely declining." I no longer work at Embarcadero, but I can tell you that Delphi usage (license sales is the only realistic marker that can be used) INCREASED after Embarcadero got Delphi. There are also some very significant improvements in recent versions, and even more exciting things come in new releases. I don't work there any more, so don't call me a shill for the company ;)

comment When is it appropriate to not unit test?
We're having great success at Transactis using Telerik's web automation testing tool. We've already got dozens of formerly manual browser tests converted to automation. The automated tests are WAY faster, and are also GREAT for highlighting any performance issues your web site may have.
