I also use Delphi (commercially $$$) on a daily basis and C#. But I
choose the best language/framework for the job.
With the latest IDE, Delphi2005, I can work in native Delphi.win32, C#
and Delphi.net in the same project group.
Its a inclusive.
As an IDE its well suited to take on new personalities. I hope Borland
get round to a Delphi mono
personality sometime soon.

Pascal is far more commercially viable than F#. X# or C#Omega and data
type extensions for
XML and data tables look more interesting academically.
These will inform the design choices/features for C# 3.0.
