Correct, but the FIRST problem is the Lazarus website. It's NOT a
website at all, but simply web access to the Forums. I've used Lazarus
for 5 years and still get confused with the amount of forums. Plus, NO
useful information.

Somebody that doesn't know FPC and Lazarus will not know that you can
go to the Free Pascal website to find out information about Lazarus,
and that you can use the Free Pascal wiki to find Lazarus information.
After all, FPC and Lazarus are two separate projects.

I can really see where the original poster is coming from. The Lazarus
website is the problem. Make the starting page a list of basic
information and links to Download instructions, Documentation, Mailing
list information, Forum Information, Wiki information. etc...

Don't just drop the user directly into the Forums!
