OS/2 and eComStation For some months now, independent developers have been working on a Qt4 port for eComStation, and it's almost ready. Some Qt4 applications have been ported to eCS, as well. This project is funded by donations from the eCS-OS2 community and currently they have 82% of the needed sum.

RE[2]: Qt is the future

Do you really beleave what you say?

Lazarus is horrible. It is totally unstable the LCL is totally unintegrated in any os.(using a toolkit does not make it look native) A lot parts are buggy resource hungry and practiclly unusable. The IDE is not nearly on the level of QtCreator or Eclipse.

And Object Pascal is not the language everyone want.

My experience was that it is better to use a combination like C++/Python and Qt or Python and pyGTK rather than Object Pascal and the LCL.

Couldn't agree more.

Pascal has a special place on my heart for being one of the first programming languages I used. Turbo Pascal was great as environment.

But Pascal as a mainstream language is dead. I only see it as a legacy language, and I can say most developers I know see it the same way as I.

In that case you don't know what is happening around the place.

Object Pascal (particularly in Delphi shape) is a quite common language for development. And when it comes to lazarus, it definitely is used quite a bit. It is no more legacy than .Net.

And I won't even bother to answer all the nonsens and FUD about Lazarus and LCL.
