This one is funny!  :-)

I have used Delphi since D4 up till D7 in commercial development and
switched to FPC and Lazarus about 2 years ago.  I think Delphi has a
great IDE, but in the last few releases it became bloatware!

We still need to maintain some Delphi based code and use Delphi 7 for
that.  Now on the exact same PC, Delphi 7 takes 25 seconds to start
up.  Lazarus takes a mere 2 seconds.  Lazarus is still far from being
slow an non-responsive!!!

Oh btw my PC is a Intel P4 2.4Mhz with 512Mb RAM.
