I'd like to see Free Pascal used more for "factory" (industrial) work 
and for the last 5.5 years I've tried to do that (along with encouraging 
embedded system development).  This message thread is very interesting 
even though I don't know very many details.  If I could add something to 
the fpGUI programs on this page that might be interesting:
