AFAIK most of the large projects done with Lazarus are not in the public domain.
That's correct.
"Logically, no number of positive outcomes at the level of experimental testing can confirm a scientific theory, but a single counterexample is logically decisive."

Thank you for all the information.
I will make some thoughts on it and will talk with my customer.

@thaddy:
Budget is open. The limit is the sky.
Question is only to find out what is more suitable for my customer. Using an external company/programmer or getting a programmer as staff member. Time is the question, not the budget. As faster as better...

Additional they told that nobody would use anything byside C# and C++ for new Software projects. Delphi would be overaged and out of discussion for software development.

Any statements on this?

Yeah, they are full of it. I wonder why you even bother to listen to them, since they are clearly clueless and subjective.

I am a C++ programmer, and there are C++ frameworks for the web - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_web_frameworks#C.2B.2B - as there are web frameworks for pretty much any language, obscure or not, you can think of.

There is not really much difference between using C++, C, Rust or Go, so obviously: that does exist. And people are actually doing that.

If you care about faster time to market, productivity and maintainability, rather than what's hot these days, Lazarus and FPC is actually a very compelling option in my opinion.
Very productive.

Base your decisions on what you need, not on what's the newest black.
