Delphi vs everything

I am making my first baby steps into Cocoa/iPhone development for the Mac and I can now see how much ahead of its time was Delphi when it was developed. Having seen almost every other Java GUI development tool and framework I can almost reluctantly declare it: "After so many years and Delphi still has the RAD edge"

Makes me feel sad really, such a good IDE, language and compiler (still the fastest there is??) and yet the product has been sold and resold and still can't generate enough revenue...

If only we had Delphi's GUI and compiler, IntelliJ Idea's editor and refactoring abilities, Java's language and VM and Apple's beautiful UI in one simple product...

Is it too much I am asking for?
