Some reasons:
 * Free Pascal is open source (always available and no vendor lock-in)
 * Free Pascal is free, so can always use latest version at NO cost.
 * Previous skills from Delphi 7 project can be reused. No need to retrain
   developers. Saving 1000's in cost.
 * Previous business domain code can be reused. Saving hundreds of hours
   in development time.
 * No runtime or VM is required to run apps (unlike PHP, C# or Java).
 * Development tools are free and again open source.

I know of many developers or companies using ExtPascal to write web
apps. I unfortunately have not looked at it yet. I started our CGI
apps long before I found out about ExtPascal.
