I use Delphi almost exclusively, and I write desktop programs (some 
command-line stuff too).  The only exception is a small amount of Perl 
where someone had already written some code, but even that is moving to 
using FreeImage and NetCDF libraries with Delphi 2009 and a very little 
Delphi 10.1 for 64-bit benefits.  My only Lazarus program has been a 
digital clock for the Raspberry Pi.

Many of my users are still on VB6!
