[Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes] After an initial welcome (and purchase!) I find myself having to curb my initial enthusiasm. Most of the omissions from the Starter Edition, as compared to the Professional and higher editions, make perfect sense and are in fact pretty much what I myself described as appropriate for a “Community Edition” some time ago (tho I still think that the attitude toward database access is from a bygone age – DBExpress should be included). Other omissions were a little questionable, and others downright bizarre. But I have now learned of a single, crucial omission (not advertised) that renders the entire “Starter” moniker meaningless: No RTL/VCL Source Code!
