Lazarus comes with a component library, containing components that are functional equivalents of those of Delphi 7 and of some later Delphi editions (buttons, listbox, checkbox, treeview,...) plus lots of Lazarus specific components (see wiki.freepascal.org/Component_Palette)
A Delphi project can be converted for Lazarus with the integrated "Delphi Converter".
Unlike Delphi Starter, with Lazarus you can build elaborate database
applications. And it can be run in Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, BSD, etc...
Lazarus can be downloaded from Lazarus-ide.org
