I have no idea about linker and debugger idiosyncrasies.
I don't know myself. I am merely pointing out facts.

Ok. There are issues. There has to be progress and resolution
to move forward.

Just go give you perspective here. The enemy is NEVER better.
And this particular one is as bad as it gets.

Reality check here. I've been developing / reporting because of
Aurawin for about 7 years.
Sometimes my project has had to wait for Lazarus developers to further
the platform. There
are times I have prayed for help for you guys to get further along
faster. I have invested my
time and money into Aurawin which depends on Lazarus and FPC.
I have been offering oversight and strategy hints for years.

This issue will affect me, as I plan to release 2 open source projects.
Others trying to
build Aurawin projects from source will find it impossible. And that is
ok (for now).
As a substitute at least I MUST be able to release binary distros.
Personally, I can live without windows support. But some users cannot.
While I can see how windows is becoming more and more deprecated,
having no Windows cloud sync software is a problem.
Aurawin is a great new way to store, share, and enjoy your
photos, videos, music and more.
