You do not know anything about Delphi. ;-)
It actually is (limited) crossplatform, as there is an implementation for
linux named Kylix.
and it may be free (I do not know and do not want to know details), as there
is the emerging lazarus project.
lazarus is near to finished for basic functions. Lazarus will be fully cross
My program nearly compiled on lazarus.
It complained about a missing gcc (i did not investigate this issue further)
well, some VCL components are still missing.
In my opinion, if you say, windows is good, because of it's ease of use, you
must say Delphi is good too.
so, ReactOS without Delphi in focus is only half it could be.
