that was what I was wondering about as well. Why not participate in fpc/lazarus development and "add" the missing features (packages etc; some language features) or "update" the D7-isms to XE standards instead of doing it themselves? In exchange they would get the benefit of the x-platform bit.

and when they are at it, they could then deploy their own additional packages/components/libraries/helpfiles with their packaged product.

fpc might then even benefit from their x86 speedup knowledge and we could get rid of the comments "delphi compiler is x times faster than fpc" that pop up every once in a while. :-)

kind regards,
Dimitri Smits
