I'm newbie in pascal language, but I know for sure, that Open Source
community driven by "technical" ideas shouldn't copy commercial moves.
The fact that Google introduced Go and Apple introduced Swift, doesn't mean
that Java or Objective-C are bad/outdated languages/frameworks.

Also the fact that Google and Apple were able to inspire some interest to
the new languages, adding some extra money to promoting them. Yet, it
doesn't mean that FPC would be able to do the same.
