I know it is hard to make software bug-free.
If the compiler can't compile and the linker can't link, why was it released?
I don't expect Embarcadero to test their software as extensively as the folks behind sqlite test their embedded database.
But somebody needs to introduce them to the concept of unit testing and continuous integration testing and have the authority to enforce it. It only hurts momentum initially but actually speeds up releases once it is in place.
To Embarcadero: I hope you succeed with RAD Studio XE3 in 2012. And I hope you consider embracing & extending NASM, llvm and clang instead of biting off more than you can chew for 2012...good luck.
The linker is still broken for Mac OS X for Mac. You get ilinke32 exit code 3. Tested on update 2
