My very short list:

Pro Lazarus:
  - The LCL is very compatible with the Delphi VCL and so you can easily 
port Delphi VCL applications to Linux (but for reasons I don't 
understand Delphi moved to Firemonkey).
  - On top of that there is a great number of rather compatible "widget 
types" that allow for easily porting such programs to multiple different 
OS and widget set variants.

Pro MSE:
  - There is a "NoGui" "Widget" option out of the box, allowing for 
completely decent event driven programming (TTimer, Thread to mainthread 
signaling) with programs that run on (deeply embedded Linux-) systems 
with no widget set installed at all
  - Martin provides the "IFI" add-on that allows for remoting the GUI 
(designed in MSEIDE) of a program via (e.g.) TCP/IP.
