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.

Yes sorry, the original post was below my threshold so I misunderstood. You're right on that front, and as I said, Lazarus has GREAT positioning and autosizing capabilities which have not been surpassed yet by any other model I used. (Netbeans 6, MS stuff including C#/.NET, gtk2(yuck), Qt). The only major stuff I didn't try yet is Cocoa/Carbon (which btw is the same thing in the bottom anyhow so macboys stop yelling "switch" on everyone) since I don't have a Mac.
