Welcome to Delphi... Delphi... Delphi

I have been a Delphi Developer since Delphi 3 when I finally decided on Delphi in 1996 as my programming language of choice for the Windows 32 environment. So what have I created with Delphi ?

Would you believe that I had single-handedly created a full ERP2 system comprising ERP+CRM where ERP=Sales Distribution+MRP+ Procurement Management+Planning & Production +Finacial Management + Human Resources Management System.
