    I wasn't sure what you meant either until I dug a little deeper after you posted rather exasperated by the lack of information on what you asked.

    The Base C++ between the two should be similar based on the C++ programming language standard.
    The differences would come in what APIs are available with the packages, so basically what the RAD Studio underlying framework includes and what .Net has in it.
    The "XE" and "XE2" names appear to just be the next gen versions after the 2010 version (as opposed to calling it 2011 or whatever) and the variation of features is in what level you purchase (starter, Pro, Enterprise, Ultimate, Architect) similar to buying the paid versions of Visual Stuido.

    Hope that's what you were looking for.
