as a former Delphi coder, I wonders how many concepts Anders put into Delphi's VCL framework and Object Pascal language are moved into C# and CLR ? and how they improved or changed during this ? eg. I know Delphi has 'method pointers' which is similiar to singlecast delegates, its way better than function pointers in C++ but C#'s multicast delegates is even better.

ehh, this is just a tech question I hope its nothing about politics between Borland and Microsoft.
