I believe FPC people do really care about speed and size since FPC is a
compiler. I think the article isn't merely for FPC, but for Lazarus as well.

Agree. The size problem mostly come from LCL framework. I do understand the
problem, but somehow other people are being scared by that. Somehow they forgot
that .Net or Java framework requires lot bigger than LCL does.

You guys have done a great job! Thank you and congratulations! :)

As I said, maybe the article is more suitable for Lazarus people. ;)
