Maybe they could release a new RAD Studio where both VCL and FireMonkey are optional addons and license accordingly.
I couldn't agree more with rlebeau
I've been answering some surveys suggesting them that might be a RAD version focused in "Windows-Only" development. What a bad surprise when I saw the AppMethod for the first time. They got it wrong!
I do agree that multi-platform is a huge differential, but what about the developers (as license buyers) of old systems trying to remove the "legacy" label on Windows machines? Or even those guys that needs RAD for desktop and database development, without thinking in mobile apparatus?
Also, with this suggestion, I also ask them what about to see some prices downgrades.
It is fair, isn't it?
