C# is very much like delphi, not at all like Python. What were their reasons to switch ?
Python is hard to read, especially if multiple blocks are closed at once, then it's hard to see what block a line belongs to (because of missing 'end' or '}').
I also don't like the magic. For example the 'mystrings.create;' example you mentioned, it's *totally* not consistent with regular syntax: mystrings.create means call "TStringList.Create" on the object pointed to by the mystrings variable.
