I can just drop a couple of components on a form. That confirms my 
theory that you don't know lazarus ;-)

And a good all-purpose language. And fast (both the compiler and the 
generated code).

Pascal can use C libraries too, and I don't know of any IDE that even 
remotely approaches what delphi did (and lazarus is starting to do).
Sure, it's not a fashion language like Java or C#, but so what?

There aren't many, say, ruby or python vacancies either, does that make 
them bad languages?
BTW, try googling fot "python paradox"....
BTW2, there are (but not many nowadays) delphi vacancies
