To the best of my knowledge, Delphi itself does not offer an event queue either in console programs.

If you are talking about thread queues: the mechanisms in Delphi and Lazarus are exactly the same.
If you are talking about the windows 'event system': this is a windows concept, not a linux concept.
Linux has different mechanisms entirely. This is unrelated to Delphi/Lazarus/FPC whatever.

I really do not appreciate this kind of derogatory comments.
