The reasoning for recommending Kylix Help to Lazarus users was simple.
Only in the last year or so did the Lazarus LCL actually start getting
help. Not to mention that Lazarus didn't even have a offline help
system to compete with anything out there.  I still feel to this day,
the Kylix Help is still a lot more complete, detailed and useful, with
working example code too.

As for the x86 Linux only comment.... Well, tough sh*t to the Windows
and Mac users. I paid for Kylix Enterprise, so why the hell may I not
reuse what I paid a fortune for!  In any case, LCL is supposed to be a
VCL clone (just like CLX), so the Delphi/Kylix help should be very
appropriate to LCL - if not, then the Lazarus project didn't do a very
good job cloning Delphi VCL.
