How I use Linux to write software for multiple target platforms using Wine, Delphi 7, Lazarus and Delphi Berlin

How I use Linux to write software for multiple target platforms – Kris Kamil Jacewicz – Google+

WINE has come a long way. Many things do not have a native look and feel, but so do many Delphi FMX or Lazarus LCL applications.

In fact I use quite a few tools (including Mikrotik WinBox) through Wine on Mac OS and it runs a lot more stable than quite a few of the FMX applications I’ve tried and ditched.

So for business applications not requiring a platform specific look and feel this indeed is quite acceptable direction to follow.

    Isn’t there a fairly “common” GUI-layer for FPC/Lazarus that is sort of cross-platform too? The most confusing thing for me with FPC (I don’t use Lazarus) is figuring out (seriously) which units I need to include to pull in the OS API headers for stuff that isn’t covered by the RTL. SO frustrating and SO time consuming.
