I think we should stop the VB vs Pascal discussion now. It's useless since we
all here already know which is the winner. Even Alex himself had already knew
about this, no need to convince him more.
So, let's back to the main topic that had started this thread: The TurboCash
Delphi-to-FPC convertion project. Let's do some (real) actions! First, somebody
has to convince the TurboCash guys over there that FPC/Lazarus is the best
alternative compiler and IDE to make TurboCash compiled and run natively on
Linux (and other platforms as well). But don't make Python look bad... good
Pascal guys don't like to say bad things about other programming languages. Just
list the advantages of FPC/Lazarus over Python, regarding to this project.
Second, some other person has to do some PR things on this issue. This could be
done on FreshMeat or NewsForge or any open-source news media that had published
this issue before. Convince other people that FPC/Lazarus can do the work, even
it's the best alternative.
The last and the most important is... make a developer team who will do the
convertion work. There are LOTS of things need to be done since TurboCash is
very Delphi and win32 specific application.
So... who will start this? :)
