I totally agree with you. That is one of the reasons that I continue
using Object Pascal.
I work in a company but I work as a freelancer/consultor as well. I
use Object Pascal in both cases, but as I said in other email,
sometimes it is difficult choose Object Pascal to build software for
my clients because they think that it's an obsolete technology.

I agree, again.
