Here is something very interesting. All along I have been saying that
Lazarus might not be an exact port of Delphi due to some basic
differences in the lower level coding design. Well it appears that even
Inprises port of Delphi isn't a port of Delphi. Here is the link to the
article. http://linuxtoday.com/stories/10476.html

They are making RAD tools for Linux but are not porting Delphi directly.
It appears that Lazarus might be more of a port then Inprises.

This is a quote.

"According to Michael Swindell, Inprise group product manager for Linux,
porting of applications developed on Delphi and CBuilder for Windows
will be simple and straightforward.

However, Kylix is not a port of Delphi and CBuilder but a new product
using entirely Linux standards and Linux components while incorporating
the best features of the Borland Windows development tools."
