I'm not sure you'll agree with me, but I believe that development tools MUST be friendly, easy to use, so they will allow the developer to focus on the solution, not on how to use the tool itself. Delphi (as its Linux counterpart, Kylix) has proven to be friendly and powerful, not specifically easy to learn, but "easy to use". I would use Delphi to develop such applications, mostly because I'd have to learn it first, and I know it can be done...
I like to use TK/GTK under Linux environment, but sometimes the functionality of the final product leads to a harder, bigger source code. I believe Delphi allows faster development in some specific cases.
Anyway, simply knowing Delphi or any other tool will not lead to such final products as Euclid; the looks made me think of Delphi, but your own efforts are far beyond the scope of this brief analysis.
That said, congrats again for the great job.
