Not at all. Big part of interface is compatible. It's good designed. FPC
Generics.Collections implementation is very different and extended.

Delphi "Generics.Collections" is inspired by C# namespace
"System.Collections.Generic" and by "C5 Generic Collection Library" (
http://www.itu.dk/research/c5/ ).

IMO it's like non formal standard/pattern of using of collections.
