Hmm, I thougt that the idea behind FPC/Lazarus was that you "write
once compile everywhere" and then the question of OS becomes moot.

The controls I put on my form were simply a TButton and 3 TEdits.
I am testing Lazarus on a WinXP virtual machine at the moment because
I am used to Windows. But the target eventually will be Linux (Debian)
on an embedded card with a touch LCD screen.

I thought that I would not need to develop on that limited platform
but could do everything on Windows, then compile for the Linux
platform and go from there.

But your comment indicates to me that the "compile everywhere" is not
working to create an application that looks the same everywhere...

Or maybe it does but then one has to accept flat form faces in Java
