I think Lazarus is a great RAD IDE. I created (the start of) a
multi-platform gui for my ISA oscilocope in 1 day. The other guys on
the project were amazed, they say: I would take weeks to do this on
c++!! The project is also undoable on java. Clicking the pallete has
never killed Lazarus for me.

What exactly is wrong on it being Delphi like??? I love Delphi (the
non .net at least).

I think you need to try the latest stable Lazarus (0.9.10) and take a
look if it is still unstable .. maybe you tested an old lazarus. The
project has had significant improvements.

Please give objective reasons to back up your statement that Lazarus
is a bad IDE (and test the latest stable one to see if the problems
were not fixed).
