Any Oxygene users here?

I've been looking at Oxygene's website for about a month now, wondering if I should pull the trigger and buy it or if I should spend that money on my upgrade to XE3? I've got XE2 but I haven't written a single line of code with it yet. I bought it to get access to DexExpress updates (they dropped support for D2009).

But XE2 isn't supported anymore and XE3 will be getting IOS and Android support early next year - but as an add-on. Oxygene will cost $500 and I'll get IOS and Android support as part of that. Going to XE3 and working on IOS and Android will mean working with Firemonkey and therefore my DevEx controls won't be of much use so I'll be working with the stock controls. It seems like if I want to write some mobile/tablet apps that I need to either learn the other languages (ObjectiveC and Java), go with XE3 and pay for the extra add-ons or go with Oxygene.

I'm looking for thoughts, suggestions, opinions, etc. (All the things that SO disallows smile ).

RE: Any Oxygene users here?

I don't know if FM is the silver bullet.
FM was too buggy in XE2 to bother with and don't know it's state in XE3.
I'm still stuck on XE and I will hold out to see if they come up with support for Android.
If you want to make good apps, I believe that each platform itself provides a better toolset.
