A .NET development system is typically built on top of .NET, a Java
development system on top of Java.
FPC instead is not built on top of a single system, and supports more
than a single target. That makes it different from beforementioned
The Delphi maintainers decided to restrict the development system to
Windows, but plan to allow for multiple targets by cross-compilation
(and remote debugging?) features (Delphi "X").
