:x get it from their web site in Scotts Valley and talk to them. Its better than Microsoft.
Yeah, I could download a demo from the Borland website, but it's only good for 30 days. A new version of Delphi starts at $1000, so I'm looking for a legal qualifying older version (3.0 Professional or newer) that I can use to get the upgrade price (around $450). v3.0 through v5.0 comes up on e-bay frequently for somewhere in the $150-$300 range, which combined with an upgrade price would be a significant savings over just buying a new copy.
The Delphi Personal Edition sells for around $100, but Borland will not allow anything developed with it to be distributed - even for free! At least MS allows distribution of software created with it's equivalent low-end VB.NET software; I'm not sure why Borland has adopted the policy it has.
So, since the tone of your post seemed to imply that I am looking for an illegal copy of Delphi (including the frowning face), even though I explicitly mention no pirated copies, I hope this clears it up. I have and use zero (0) illegal software of any sort, and pay the requested fees to creators of Shareware that I end up finding useful enough to keep.
