It is extremely unfair that guys like me how bought the product 4 weeks ago, as soon as it came out, because I believe in the Embarcadero line, don’t get the free bonus.

It will defiantly effect my decision to buy next time.

Agreed, it's pretty sad that early adopters get penalized.

Of course, all of these freebies make me wonder if Delphi just isn't selling anymore, in which case this is all sorta moot.

Contact them, as I was able to get my BOGO during the last promotion after it expired! ;-)

Rather than getting free products that I don't particularly want, I'd rather get a commitment to fix the bugs in the product that I bought.

For example, I have 2010 and have struggled with lots of the bugs. Lots of the bugs are fixed in XE, but there doesn't appear to be any prospect of the fixes being back-ported.

OK, I could upgrade to XE, but then I'd get all the bugs in XE which in turn won't be fixed when Delphi 16 comes out.
