"The power of the Kylix is its objectivity. With packet you get lot of classes - labels, edition windows, listboxes, comboboxes, buttons, tabels etc. - but you aren't limited to them. You can create your own components, modify existing or bring into the project higher level classes - for example sheets, which can inherit further."

"Non-visual components don't seem to be some kind of revolution - technically they are just classes. But without Kylix, programmer has to remember how initiate object from given class, with which parameters given method can be called, and what are possibily interactions with the other objects - now you can build your application as simple as your child plays with the puzzles."

"Work in group? No problem. Your partner working on an application chooses componets he needs, almost the same way which your wife do the shopping. One dialog box and one color palette, please. Thank you.
