I'm a Delphi programmer. 1.1 is amazing. I've had a play with it, and it passes
my simple interface test :-)
At home I'm a BeOS user. I have no interest in Windows - I'm sick to death of
it. Porting to BeOS is fun. No one cares, no one want's it (although the
interest in it is pretty amazing.)

Yep. I never said BeOS was popular, or that a port would be popular. It's a
pointless waste of time. Just as the Amiga port is now.
I'd like to see a Mac port for Power PC though. Not that I'm offering to do it,

No, it's useless. BeOS is dead, but I'm enjoying myself and it gets me away
from Windows. I'm also learning C++ at the same time.

They must really hate FPC if they do ;-)
