That's always the trade off. MSEgui is something really different from lazarus:
Lazarus/lcl is vcl compatible and uses the native widget set. MSEgui uses a
complete pascal only approach: no compatibility, no default gui elements from
the OS, this leads to little overhead, high speed and small executables. Both
approaches can't be combined unfortunately.
