Given Embarcadero's total distain for "the little folk", I hope ICS 
will continue to leave versions of the ICS which are compatible with 
Delphi 4 and Delphi 7 on the ICS website, for those of us still doing 
productive work on the "early" Delphis which can... shock horror!... 
still be installed on systems simply by entering a registration key, 
rather than via an online registration process which leaves the 
package owner vulnerable to the marketing choices of the software 

As Kylix seems "dead", I hope Lazarus is thriving, and that a version 
of ICS which works with that is/ will remain available... but will 
understand that if Lazarus is NOT doing well, the energy to support 
it cannot be justified.
