I was just a bit triggered onthe fact that people offer competing products on FPC status requests,because I've seen it more than once that people just ask for the Status ofX, regarding FPC, and when it's not there right now, they just move on tosomething else. And we have to "compete" with a whole range of commercialproducts, where this attitude doesn't help.

I agree for what it's worth, and I also find it very frustrating when- 
in a mailing list specifically for FPC or Lazarus- somebody asks a 
question about the standard development environment or a standard 
component and gets the answer that the best way to do it is to use 
somebody else's pet project.

I'm only using Arduinos at the moment (potentially including e.g. 
Teensy), and until I'm far more knowledgeable about remote debugging 
etc. am inclined to keep it that way :-)
