Both other VCL-like cross-platform libraries I'm aware of (GLib/GTK+ and Qt) include an abstraction of the underlying event system ( and ). I don't understand why Embarcado should not use a similar approach and includes a cross-platform event-system wrapper in FireMonkey. It would make the life easier not only for ICS developers, I suppose. BTW: I am not 100% sure but I think that at least GLib doesn't build its event system on threads but on I/O signals for better performance.
