Curiousity: Count of developers in Borland, VB ?

I am very curious to know this. How many developers/testers  does **Borland** employ for its Delphi product . How many developers does **microsoft**  employ to develop Visual Basic .NET ?. Similiarly, any ideas about Sybase Powerbuilder?

I know that .NET has several product families. I am looking for some rough answer.

In other words whats the respective strengths of the Delphi and Visual Basic.NET teams?

I am just curious to know how many people are needed to produce  products like these.

this is strictly the Delphi team, not the entire Borland . Similiarly for MS and Sybase

thanks very much

Well, Microsoft hired the brains behind Delphi (and Turbo Pascal, RIP) to lead their C# team, so I would guess that C# will be pretty good. I think his name is something like Anders Heijlsberg, and he is considered a genius in compiler-writing circles.
