[Lazarus] A new competitor to Lazarus and Free Pascal

RealBasic has been around as long as I can remember.  I used it on the Amiga 25 years ago.

I know a guy who develops comercial software in RB.  Word is they "did a Borland" and let their quality really fall apart.  Now they are struggling to recover.

I never thought I would say this about the Basic language.... :-)
But Real Software has made a pretty impressive product called
REALBasic. When I read about this back in 2005, I didn't think they
would be around for long. But to my surprise, they have been hammering
away and improving REALBasic year-on-year. REALBasic overcomes many of
the limitations we know about VB6 and has some impressive features -
in the language and IDE. Including cross compiling for Linux, Windows
and Mac, plus it's very easy to install. It also comes with a build-in
profiler... See screen shot link.  Damn, it would be nice having such
a profiler for Free Pascal / Lazarus development tools. ;-)
