On the Borland blog Danny Thorpe talks about the lack of supporting in Delphi 2005 for the .NET Compact Framework. It appears that the CF designers are Visual studio specific and that building own designers is an economic decision. It appears than Borland is heavily negotiating with Microsoft on this matter.
Steve Trefethen is blogging that the same applied to the ASP.NET designers, but that Borland decided to build their own designers instead of waiting for Microsoft to open it up.
Well it is clear that Borland takes all the necessary actions to get the stuff going in Delphi 2005 but that alot depends on Microsoft's strategy on that.
Must be very frustrating for Borland I guess.
