Make sure you are talking apples and apples here. At this point there a 
two different Win32 binaries available. The on in the download section 
of the web site points to a sample binary I built which uses the latest 
alpha GTK-Win32 libraries. This was to show that as the Win32-GTK 
libraries get more stable the GTK version of Lazarus will be able to be 
used in the Win32 environment.

Keith is working on the native Win32-API version of Lazarus. This still 
has some sticky points and various parts that are still in development. 
We are hoping that the native Win32-API version will start to get more 
stable so that we are not dependent on the port of GTK to windows which 
isn't very stable.  :-\

I'm sure Keith would appreciate all the help he can get with the 
Win32-API Interface.
