It can see the advantages and they should not be diminished:
- having different compilers to confirm or exclude a compiler bug.
- The cycle, code, compile, run, debug, code is quicker on Delphi, (if you are on 
- I haven't used Delphi lately, but I think the debugger is better than what Lazarus 
offers. For example stepping through Lazarus code is slow, if the Call Stack view is 
opened, because the Lazarus listview doesn't implement BeginUpdate and EndUpdate
