I've never heard of Ultibo.  I'll have to check that out!

The book that Michalis Kamburelis wrote, "Modern Object Pascal 
Introduction for Programmers" is something you might want to look into. 
It's not aimed at event driven programming or GUI interfaces.  I do think 
that it's lacking information on how to use the FreePascal toolchain 
though - that's just as important as the language itself.  You can't get 
much programming done if you don't know how to kick off the compiler. :)
