I'm a newbie with Lazarus and FPC, and I expect that both projects grow 
and they be consolidated like tools of development.

Some days ago, I was listening a conference about GNOMEDB and when spoke 
of the different languages named to Pascal, but they said that was a 
project almost dead.

I felt myself very sad, because I know that the project is living, but 
perhaps since outside has another vision.

 From Argentina, I congratulate for the effort that carry out.
