Is this offer for all users? Can other EU-members than Germans buy the
offered products? Could you post the link in that case?

It seems they can, but there are different prices for them:
Pro: Bewohner der Europäischen Union zahlen EUR 321.32 inkl. 16% MwSt.
Ent: Bewohner der Europäischen Union zahlen EUR 901.32 inkl. 16% MwSt.
Ask them by phone or email:
Wenn Sie noch Fragen zu diesem Angebot haben, schicken Sie uns entweder
eine E-Mail an XXXX@XXXXX.COM oder rufen Sie uns an unter der
kostenfreien Telefonnummer 00800 BorlandT (26752638).

I have a friend who brings a (my) copy of your book from Canada. Meeting him
on Sunday.

Just found out, over 4300 copies have sold. that is not bad given it's
basically only been available for a few months now. it is steadily
selling and will likely have a longer shelf life. We're going to have
to do another reprint.

I also found out that the small print-runs are industry standard now.
Basically, it is not as expensive to do and doesn't take long once the
run order is made.

So, it seems that things are looking up.

Now how did they EVER figure that one out?
There are going to be a lot of developers that performance will never
switch their applications to the CLR.

Ok. Call me stupid, but I didn't understand that these were all
*upgrade* prices. Not everyone here is a Delphi owner. There are a lot
wannabes too :-)
But if I buy a old (D3-6) used Delphi license from someone, I think I
can transfer the license to my name by asking it from Borland. Right?

Where does it say "upgrade"?

Re: Delphi 7 sold cheap now

I dunno. You have to call Borland for that. They always revise their
policy regarding that. D2 or D3 does not work anymore, I guess. I am
not even sure if D4 still counts. And sometimes you could only upgrade
to the next version if you had Professional...

I also received it. It looks genuine, but I could not find a link from
borland.de to the site mentioned in the email:
I have asked Borland Germany for a
confirmation.
And it took them only a week to respond: The offer is genuine.

That's good to know!
It is genuine and well hidden. I did not find any way to locate it on
the download webshop. There is a link to the Element5 download shop on
the Borland Delphi pages, but I could only find the old pricing going
that way.
Is this a somehow restricted program?

In the mail that they send to me when I asked them :
"thank you for contacting Borland.
The upgrade offer is for Delphi 3-6 Pro Produkts,it is only avalible for
download. "

Ok. Call me stupid, but I didn't understand that these were all
*upgrade* prices.
After many, many mails, somebody (a supervisor?) there finally informed
me that :
"Infocenter is only responsible for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We
have no right to trade with other countries than these."
Aarrgghh !!! I wasted a lot of time and energy with this. And all for
nothing. They really shouldn't have marked that other price for EU
countries.
And they even sell to Switzerland, which isn't a EU member state!!

I haven't got a clue. The Borland people didn't say anything. But since it
is for the German version only, I would say there is "some" restriction. ;-)
Interestingly it mentions the price in Euros and USD, but that might just be
some kind of automatically generated template.
