Amazing!

Great feeling to be using Delphi7-like IDE again!

Thanks Lazarus developers!

From Delphi to C#, now back to Delphi/Lazurus I think......

I suppose many of us feel the same. With several languages prior and in between, at some point I worked in Turbo Pascal, then C++, now Free Pascal/Lazarus.

Thanks to the team.

I started with punch cards, 8080, 6509.6502, 6510,Z80,8088/8086,68000 ASM...

Then I  played with C, TP of a few version, C++, Delphi of a few versions, Builder C++ , VC++ , some Web stuff (boring) and here...

 I also do automation PLC stuff and SADA apps.

 wanted to add, I've also done Fortran and some obscure languages..

 I am a jack of all languages, master of none!

Punch cards? I did that to create Christmas cards,
My history is more like
- Burroughs terminals with 300 baud and local BASIC (1977) but also ALGOL, COBOL and FORTRAN
- Dec-vax (1980) for data processing at university ( spss, mainly)
- Apple 2e (1981) with Pascal (UCSD) for learning (and teaching) purposes. Best machine  ever!
- ZX 16. Commodore pet, 64, IBM PC. (I still have a - not working - model 1)

Since you mention both Burroughs and Xmas... CANDE?

Couple of disjoint observations there. It seems to me that the early American computers were oriented towards punched cards while the British ones were oriented towards paper tape, presumably following the heavy usage of (IBM) tabulators etc. in the USA and codebreaking in the UK.

While Burroughs was heavily into multitasking OSes, these were mostly based around commercial programs which collected a query from a queue and returned a response to the same terminal. Certainly on the B5500 (their first disk-based system with a completely rewritten OS) there were different MCPs for batch and interactive (CANDE) operation.
