I believe that the real problem is to find Object Pascal programmers
comparing with other languages.
The companies are thinking in their future.

"Who will maintain this code?"
"No one are using Object Pascal nowadays".

I hear something like this two times per month.  :\

However, we know the potential of Object Pascal as a language to do anything.
If we have a better marketing, maybe more programmers could have more
interest to use the language.
