Windows "Microsoft recently extended 'It Just Works' compatibility for Visual Basic 6 applications through the full lifetime of Windows 8. Visual Basic 6 first shipped in 1998, so its apps will have at least 24 years of supported lifetime. Contrast that with the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 (2002), which is incompatible with Windows 7 (2009)."

hmmm, odd I have written a bunch of apps with Lazarus and never had it crash when saving a project.
The key with Lazarus is to make sure you have the latest version. If on Linux it's best to compile it yourself as the distributions usually have old versions.
