Started with a VIC 20, Sinclair ZX81 and later the Spectrum. Turbo Pascal 2.0 and was also at the launch of Delphi 1 and using it ever since. First big system was actually in PAL (Paradox Application Language), it was a Laboratory Information Management System.
Love Delphi...easy to read...nice constructs...big fan of the separate interface and implementation segmentation...even with some bugs it still rocks today.
And of course uniGUI has blown new life into it. [HIGH FIVE]
uniGUI - LOVE IT!

49 years, started with Turbo Pascal 29 years ago, 19 years with Delphi.
I started with html around 22 years ago, building static websites,
but unfortunately PHP and JS caught my interest much later.
Delphi is almost too good, so you get stuck in it...

57, started with ALGOL-60 on PDP-8 clone, FORTRAN IV, BASIC, assembly (8080/8085/Z-80/6805), IBM-360 assembly, PASCAL, Microsoft Pascal for IBM PC, Quick Pascal, Turbo Pascal, Borland Pascal, Delphi (all of them), Stonebrook Pascal, UCSD Pascal, C/C++/Turbo C/VC++/Visual Studio, C#, all kind of SQL (Informix, DB2, Sybase/MSSQL, Oracle 8.3 and higher, MySQL, Paradox, dBASE II/III/IV, FoxPro, Clipper, Visual FoxPro, DataEase.
Despite Borland, Delphi is still alive, but it is no longer appreciated for what is worth.
Delphi plus products like Spring4D, DUnitX, Devart (UniDAC and EntityDAC), TMS (a whole bunch of good products like Aurelius), DevExpress, and now uniGUI makes the perfect tool for solving all kind of problems.
Licensing costs and the false perception about its "imminent" death are the only drawbacks.
