Turbo Power!?

Borland has finally made the Turbo product line available for download. Rushed over to the download site and started to download Turbo C++. The package came in two parts - a prequisite that weighed 230MB and TC++ itself which weighed 390M!. Wonder whatz inside. Turns out .Net 1.1 is required. Hmm. As the download was progressing, began to read the FAQ. When I read that the commandline compiler was not included in the package I lost interest and cancelled the download. I was just curious to try out the compiler. Am not a big fan of IDEs. Emacs is fine for most of my needs.
