The main reason is that I have a relevant amount of Delphi/Kylix code 
using Delphi's Sockets unit. That way porting that code to Lazarus 
becomes trivial.
Secondly my applications typically involve point-to-point connections in 
a production environment. Upstream machine must communicate with 
downstream machine, end of line machine must send production data to a 
dedicated server, and so on. I need to transparently handle failures 
such as a server side being temporary down. All of that in the hands of 
unskilled operators.
Lighter and simpler code, makes it easier both to develop and to debug.


Do not do to others as you would have them do to you.They might have different tastes.
