    I'm an old-time developer who started writing code back in 1985. Having worked on many platforms, I always loved the power and flexibility of Pascal (even compared to C). In the mid 90s when I first looked at Delphi, I was so glad but it was (and is still) very expensive. Then I discovered Lazarus and the FreePacal IDE. It's an amazing thing and I love the fact that even the short-cut keys on the IDE are nearly identical to the old TP. This has made the transition very easy to FreePascal. Today I build client-server apps for Linux and Windows using Lazarus while using the text-based IDE for teaching programming at academic level. Lazarus also blends well with PostgreSQL on the back-end and I don't think I'll need to switch to another language again. Pros: * Easy to port the apps to a different OS. * Very easy and advanced GUI. * Connects to a range of DBs * Has a port of FR which is the key need for business reporting. * Open source and free to use even for commercial applications. Cons: * Report designer has some bugs - no big deal. * Documentation for reports and some advanced features fall short (but I think we have to contribute) - come on, after all, it's free! * No MDI forms - and whatever is available is not the best. Since Linux doesn't have MDI forms I've created a special class that creates a tabbed interface instead of MDIs. I think I like it but it's got some limitations. * Executable code size is pretty large - no matter what you do. But I'm ok with it.

    Outstanding. I've been writing programs in pascal for 27 years. I'm deeply grateful that all the pascal code I've written compiles with only minor tweaks required. The generosity of these fine people is world class. Thank you.
