Do you recall what the history was of this choice? I can remember using the “new" keyword on objects but I don’t remember much more (I didn’t go full in on OOP until much later and I switched to FPC in ~2005 I think). Classes were easier to work with I can remember but why abandon the stack allocation intentionally?
