General Development Recently, Free Pascal (FPC) version 2.2.0 was released. This open source Pascal compiler has - since its initial release in 1993 - grown to be one of the most sophisticated open source compilers available today. Daily, more programmers discover FPC and develop their applications in Object Pascal. Specifically, the development of Lazarus has contributed to this phenomenon: Lazarus is a graphical open source IDE for FPC, with an extensive tool kit to design graphical (GUI) applications.

What kind of non-font-sensitive, non-language-aware, hard-coded piece of shit as that?

If you do resize logic wrong, then yeah, it's easy, but it's 2007 --- we're getting past the point where you can give a wrong answer to a hard question just because it's easier than giving the right answer. If you do layout _right_, it's hard, and it's something the toolkit better handle.
