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.

Uhm yeah, good for you. But I have 300 widgets. You still haven't given me a good reason to waste my time on 300 lines of code (probably more, because some widget's position depends on others, or depends on some conditions) instead of using that to solve a real problem.

As I said, an elitist attitude.

It's not elitist, it's just dumb. I see these sorts of "programmers" all the time. They think they're better because they do grunt work that can easily be automated by the language/libraries, instead of doing real thinking to solve real problems.
