I know I'm sometimes hard on some developers. I guess sometimes one has
to sit back and see the big picture too. While reading the following
text from the OpenWatcom newsgroups, it made me realize what a great
compiler and programming language we are using.

A big thanks to the FPC team for making a GREAT compiler... and without
compile times as listed below:

------[ from a recent post in the OpenWatcom newsgroups ]---------

To give you a time schedule, my old Pentium 500MHZ took 12 hours for a
complete build, now with quadcore 2,5 Ghz it is less than 1 hour. This
is without docbuild.
