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.

No and no.

Gtk2 isn't present on some KDE only distroes, and vice versa. Gtk1 is even worse.

And package management is sometimes manual (see slackware, they DO have a dependency check tool, but it's not default IIRC).

But generally you're right. Distributing gtk2/qt apps isn't much of a problem in the "mainstream" linux desktop world.
