I think it's important to have some as-objective-as-possible
comparison for people who used and liked Delphi (like most of us are,
I believe), and are now learning about Lazarus. It's inevitable that
they'll compare Lazarus to Delphi, so let's be one step in front of
them. It's not meant to have tone "Lazarus is better than Delphi", but
to give an overview of features present in both products, as well as
important differences.

So, on second thought, I agree it shouldn't go into "Why should I use
it?" (that's where all those "big words" should be used like "Fully
UTF8 compatible - Supports all major widgetsets: GTK1, GTK2, QT,
....." and alike), but into separate section.
