- Having source for compiler and RAD, being able to customize.
(for embedded, special purposes, or newer windows versions)
- Not requiring OS patches on linux, supporting near all distro's.
- Supports *BSD and some other OSes.
- In the future multiple processors, and e.g. Mac OS X support. (and no,
I don't think Delphi going .NET will do much for that, M$ will
effectively block that)
- Continued development on the win32/x86 OS and CPU, and not freezing
that in favour of .NET.
- (on *nix): more larger part of the total code available in nice Pascal
