I organized the Borland developer conference in my country as a marketing intern in 2004 and it was still quite popular, but it's true the web was just around the corner to eat desktop apps.

I also remember a coworker had been approached by MS to work on the DotNet marketing campaign and he declined, as it was seen as kind of a failure with a very uncertain future. Hindsight is 20/20.

edit: personally I have found memories of Delphi3.
