As a relatively new user, I absolutely agree.  There is a wealth of 
components already, and trying to work out which to use where is already 
quite daunting, especially when there is little/no documentation to 
guide you!  And I am new only to FPC/Lazurus - I have been programming 
Pascal since Turbo Pascal 3, and did some reasonably serious database 
applications using Delphi 4 C/S into Oracle "on the side" during a stint 
as an Oracle DBA.
