Skype and Delphi . What’s the Relation ??? and the Quality Applications built with Delphi

Skype is a software that allows users to make voice , video calls or send text messages over internet.

I never realised that the application that i use ( skype ) was developed using Delphi . I found this information in the following links

Here is the further information on the skype .

  • Windows user interface was developed in Pascal using Delphi,
  • Linux version was Developed using C++ with Qt
  • Mac OS X version was written using Objective-C with Cocoa.

That sounds interesting to me too 🙂 .
