Delphi is one of the best programming tools to create software for Windows.

With Delphi you can without much effort create small yet powerful Windows applications, which do not need to be installed, do not depend on Active X controls, or special dlls. This means that you will have far fewer users complaining about installation problems than if you created your software using Java, .NET, Visual Basic or Visual C++. Besides, many quality Delphi freeware, shareware and open source components can be found on the Web. See also below.

Delphi allows fast and high-level/abstract programming, like Java and Visual Basic, but you can also use it to code at a lower/more fundamental level, like you can do with most C++ environments. Delphi is based on the Pascal programming language making it ideal for educational purposes as well.

Delphi IDEs and Compilers
DelphiNot free. Industrial strength Object Pascal based IDE, compiler, visual framework and component library. It runs on Windows. It allows you to create applications for: Win32, Win64, Mac OSX and iOS.
Lazarus + Free PascalFreeware Delphi-like IDE, compiler (with Object Pascal language, Visual framework and components) which runs on Linux, Windows, MAC and FreeBSD.
Programs created using Free Pascal are easy to deploy (no Java or .Net runtime, no complicated dynamic libraries). Some nice Lazarus/Free Pascal video tutorials can be found here.
Please note that most components which are listed below (on this page) are only compatible with Delphi, and not directly with Lazarus / Free Pascal. For libraries and components that can work with Lazarus / Free Pascal, please see here.
