Turbo again!

August 21st, 2006

After some assembler (8080!), the first programming language I learned had been Turbo-Pascal. If I remember correctly; it could not have been Turbo, as I was 12 years old at that time and Turbo did not yet exist then - well it does matter that much - I definitely used Turbo-Pascal later.
Borland seemed to find the name “Turbo” not very professional, so they dropped it. As IDEs are now a commodity, the professional touch is gone and the Turbo is (nearly) back!

As C# has some appeal to me, it looks like I could use another creation of Anders Hjelsberg…
