That's always good to here...

In that case, I have to give you a BIG thanks! :) Your idea with fpGUI
is what is paying my salary now. I continued development of your code
for about a year, just as a hobby.  About two months ago we evaluated
fpGUI for use in our commercial software. I got the go ahead and
started active development working full time on it for the last two
months now. I rewrote fpGUI (and the fpGFX backend) from scratch,
implementing new design ideas and basing the widgets on a 'windowed'
design. Every widget has a window handle. Things are looking great at
the moment. :)

For my employer, being able to have a GUI framework looking and
working identical on all platforms was the major selling point. The
Lazarus LCL did not work for us. Being able to customize everything,
having a very small 3rdParty library requirement and being implemented
in Object Pascal (the only language we now use) was another big bonus.

fpGUI has been revived and lives on!  :-)
