So matter of taste?
Same as some people prefer eclipse?

I was wondering how it compares (if used with FPC) to Lazarus. (Not 
saying that Lazarus has a monopoly, just interested in knowing the diffs)
I.e., maybe it offers some features that Lazarus does not have?

I can see the advantage for people often using diff languages, to use 
one IDE for all of them.
