Re: [OT] Development environment for education


If kids do want fast results than they can do imm ediatelly bash scripting and 
they will see reulsts very fast.

In addition small GUI building is possible with QT and some otyher packages.  
I do not see so much need for Delphi if the visibility of results is primary 

Best wishes,
