How can you be sure that it was the compiler? A compiler for .NET is not 
a big deal, adding an parser for the language is almost enough.

IMO CodeGear stumbled with Delphi.NET over the same stone as with Kylix: 
the Win32 centric VCL :-(

Now they try not to stumble across it for another time, and use an 
approved toolkit. Finishing the new library took precedence over an new 
compiler, so that they decided to use FPC, for the beta version.

Just my 0.02€
