I just got hit by a very bad (for me) example for this: "FreeCommander".

Since many Years I use (a legal payed for copy of) TotalCommander 
(called WinCommander before), which is a program done with Delphi. I 
now  would love to use it in Linux, as I moved most of my activities 
there. In fact there is a free clone of TotalCommander called 
FreeCommander ( http://www.freecommander.com/index.htm ). AFAIK, same 
also is done in Delphi and so it would be rather easy to use Lazarus to 
port it to Linux. But seemingly they don't provide the source code :-( .
