The ANSI string is not the problem (in my thinking). The main problem I have is that Linux does not have a message pump, so I don't know how to support events. I should study the Linux kernel, but did not found the time for it.

The other problem is the lack of TForm for Linux. It seems that the Ubuntu server (witch I have installed) is only a command line thing. I use Lazarus for Linux development who support full TForm for Linux.

it seems we only can develop console or service applications for Linux. Or am I wrong in this?

support for Linux by ICS, but it is a different compiler with no ANSI
strings, so not trivial.  But we already support the Apple MacOS
compiler which has ANSI strings, so most of the Linux work is tried and
