WDSibyl is an open source Object Pascal development environment for OS/2, eComStation and Microsoft Windows that is largely compatible with Borland Delphi, although it has diverged slightly in the last few years. It is maintained by Wolfgang Draxler who based it on the SpeedSoft Sibyl open source release of the late 90's that also begat the Lazarus project.
The general consensus is that the OS/2 version of the toolkit is in a much better state than the MS windows version although the latter is perfectly usable if a slightly outdated development tool.
