borland back in the fray

Borland has announced a new suite of development tools that will compete directly with Visual Studio .Net. My first programming environment was Turbo Pascal in DOS and it was a long time until I found an environment that was as easy to use and as versatile as that for C/C++ and then Java. In the case of Java in particular the original Visual Cafe came close, but the best one for me until recently was JBuilder.

Right now my favorite (by far) is IDEA from IntelliJ. Once you've used the refactoring features, you never look back, particularly if you use part or all of the development guidelines of Extreme Programming.
