Actually it is a fair reason for me. My apps really *need* to fit a
floppy  ... most of the e-mail I get about the installer I created on
Delphi for BrailleVirtual Course is about people trying to put it into
a floppy.

That´s the reality here in Brazil .... there are lot´s of old
computers, specially in one of my main users, the public schools.

I usually test on a Pentium 100Mhz with Win95. If it runs ok I´m happy

If it´s multi-platform I also test on a Pentium233Mhz with Damn Small Linux

I want both: small and also a good looking, easy to use GUI created
with a RAD =)

I don´t remember the last time a created a program that does not involve a GUI.
