Problems

  • Delphi doesn't run on Linux
  • No free non-commercial or free limited commercial license is provided.
  • As no free version is available no new programmers will start using Delphi in future
  • Delphi installation is too heavy (bloated).
  • Offline help contains code examples and other information related to C++ Builder which is not interesting for Delphi programmers.
  • Delphi can build multi-platform applications but only for commercially interesting platforms.

Goals

  • Create open source alternative to Embarcadero RADRapid Application Development Studio/Delphi and Delphi compiler.
  • Create community development portal (forge) - to allow to make common project management tasks easy.
  • Provide tutorials and learning stuff for new beginners programmers
