Hello Felipe,

I feel, that Carbon's IDE is not very stabile, but I feel the same
with GTK2 on Linux too. I worked in first step of porting in Windows'
Lazarus and there it was quite good with stability. I don't say it was
perfect, but basically I've got our application working on Win32.

Anyway Freepascal/Lazarus project did/still doing a lot to get very
useful independent developer environment.
