I use Lazarus, and I like it very much.  They have improved it very much
since the last two releases and it does not crash any more. It is a
GREAT software, and even if the documentation should more uniform, the
2-packages system  (FPC-Lazarus) is OK.

My message to the developers: Do not add any new features until the
first Official release. Then write a book!

Good luck.
