I spent last 4 days with Kylix OE and I must say it's pain in the
looks cool, but IDE is crashing every 20 minutes, if you reset
running application, the process remains (and is hard to kill :-( )
and the QT dependency is really annoying, it ships with qt2.2.4 and
RedHat 7.1 comes with 2.3.0. : KDE doesn't work with Kylix version
and Kylix app crashes with 2.3.0.

O must say, that first impression is really bad.
