This is kind of what I meant, I just put it in much simpler terms. Sorry if
my earlier statement caused offence.

I never said FPC is slow, just that it is "slower" than Kylix and Delphi -
but I also tried to explained why it is slower. I do know and acknoledge
that FPC is MUCH faster than many other language compilers out there. A
