    Re: Development on the Mac!

    I disagree. I develop (Mac) OS X and Windows software with Delphi FireMonkey. The Object Pascal language does not contain any curly braces and the Delphi Firemonkey GUI is very similar to Visual...

    Re: Development on the Mac!

    For the moment the exact name of the Mac operating system is just OS X but Apple said they are going to rename it macOS shortly.

    You hit the nail on the head. I personally believe that this ambition should be pursued by all language teachers.

    Thanks. I think you are perfectly right when you refer to the average English speaker. Nevertheless, very often students expect their English teacher to master all aspects of the language, including...

    Re: Linguistic tips for a non-native speaker

    Thanks. Anyway, getting rid of my foreign accent is also a question of self-esteem for me, as I am an English teacher. So, I think I'll have to roll up my sleeves and work hard on it.

    I agree with you: I badly need to work on my accent. My daughter is only 12 years old but her English accent is just brilliant. I should ask her what her secret is.

    Linguistic tips for a non-native speaker

    Hi,

    First of all, this thread has not much to do with programming.

  18. Re: New VS 15 with VB 14, .NET FW 4.6 and .NET Native

    Are you sure that native compiling regards classic desktop applications?

    I have a feeling it only deals with Windows Store apps.

    I have installed VS 2015 Express (for Desktop) and I have found...
  19. Re: vb6 created application running on $99 Tablet

    But how can the form scroll if there is no space left? I mean, since all of the screen is occupied by the form (which has no scrollbars), how would it be possible to scroll it?

    Thanks.
