Hi all...

Reading Linux community media (mostly lists and forums), I've seen that Pascal 
language is still considered as non-serious and toyish programming language. No 
wonder if Linux people hardly know about Pascal. Though they're already knew 
about it, the ignore it. Besides, Pascal they knew is the old primitive Pascal 
we know 20 years ago. They even can't distinguish Pascal (as the language) and 
Delphi (as [object] Pascal IDE)! Poor Pascal. :(

Typical Linux people are always talking about C/C++, Python, and Java as the 
chosen powerfull and unbeatable programming language for any kind of needs! No, 
I don't mean to start a language flame war here. But, I think we -Pascal lovers 
and developers- should enter Linux community and promote Pascal, especially our 
beloved FPC.

Since UBUNTU now is the most Linux distro talked about these days, I think we 
should promote our FPC in their community as well. UBUNTU web forum 
(www.ubuntuforums.org) may become a good start. :)

Let's do it! :)
