I earning my money as delphi developer (now 20years).In the freetime I support Lazarus/FPC.
The system I wrote (in the company) is in-house software usedby about 150 users per day. (it's built with D7)
D7 was fast/stable. We bought several new versions of Delphi in the past 13years butnone of the new versions was as handy as D7.But now I am working with Delphi XE 10.2 Tokyo and I must say it's very ok! I can recommend it.I would say they are back again :-) ( Hopefully they will remove the dependency to .NET-stuff )
Now let's talk a little about Lazarus...It's incredible which progress this project has made!The recent improvements in the IDE and Installer area (fpcupdeluxe and online package manager) makethings really better for new users.
To attract more/new users to Object-Pascal "universe" the following things would help: (applies for both Delphi and Lazarus)
A) a way to give a whole project from one developer to another developer. (no fiddeling around with missing packages/components/paths/environment-path). e.g. a Menu-Option "Export-Project" which creates a bundle with all necessary files)B) Examples that work out of the box. ( when I choose examples in Lazarus, half of them do not work).C) Beginner Videos.
