Borland revives 'Turbo' for developer tools

Borland Software has brought back the Turbo product moniker with the introduction of language-specific developer tools.

The Turbo name had been prominent as part of the company's Turbo Pascal product. The revival features single-language versions of Borland Developer Studio, which is a development environment Microsoft Windows and .Net applications. The Turbo product set includes Turbo Delphi for Win32, Turbo Delphi for .Net, Turbo C++ and Turbo C#. The .Net and C# products support .Net and ASP.Net.

The Turbo products are being unveiled by the Developer Tools Group, which Borland intends to sell by September.

Versions will be available in two formats: A free, downloadable Turbo Explorer version for beginners, and the customisable Turbo Professional, which is designed to accommodate thousands of third-party tools, components and plug-ins.

With the new Turbo products, developers can build GUI, database, Web and Web services applications for Microsoft Windows.

Future Turbo products were expected to be released for other languages, such as now-popular scripting languages, when the tools group found a new home, vice-president of developer relations at Borland, Dave Intersimone, said.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
