comment Does it violate the license to use Windows XP Mode with Virtual Box?
Does that even work? I think you're better off installing xp directly into a vb vm.

comment When do you start documenting the code?
He does say why - because its unlikely they'd go back and document. I think thats probably an accurate assessment for most projects. Its less dull to document as you code.

comment Can You Make An Entire Website With JavaScript?
tedious isnt the best word, I guess. Perhaps 'demanding', in that it requires a sophisticated understanding of javascript, plus a good understanding of HTML, AJAX, DOM, etc. From a pure programmer's standpoint, it might be conceptionally easier to build an app via code, esp if one is familiar with building desktop apps since the paradigm is so similar.

comment How is Delphi XE2 going to work across platforms?
They have not explicitly said Win64 and Mac will be native code - but they havent said otherwise, and Delphi has always been native code. They have the resources and extensive know-how in building compilers, so I see no reason to think it'd be anything other than native code. That being said, I've not seen anything official that says Mac support will be in this version - just Win64. Though I'd be very glad to be wrong about that. FireMonkey is a set of user interface components for non-standard, flash-like interfaces.
