      Lazarus vs B4X opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      More similar language(case insensitive, : instead of As, var/const instead of Dim, has As/Is), RAD, time tested, cross platform, truly "bare-metal" native like C/C++, many libs, can use/make libs for C/C++/ObjC, Free/OSS. Apps like PeaZip, 64 bits Total Commander, Double Commander and others are made with it. Similar to Delphi and VB, Classic Skype made with Delphi. Only VB from MS might be more similar, certainly not Java.
