Both support "code completeish" features. I don't remember what code insight is though.

I'm currently using Dev_Pascal as the IDE for FreePascal.

The feature I most miss are the short cut keys used by delphi to move around in the code (Shift-Ctrl C: Complete the Class; Ctrl-Up - Go to declaration; Ctrl-Down go to implementation).

I've just got Lazarus downloaded and installed - it has those cool keyboard short cuts!

Guess I wont be using DevPascal anymore :)

I just downloaded & installed it too! I was able to compile my project in my Debian box with no great problems.
It seems that the code completition is present, but i'm having trouble to use it.. i'm trying to fix it now :P

The only problem is that it uses gtk 1 and it look really ugly :(
There's no hope they will pass to gtk2 in short time..

Also, i actually prefer having all on a single window like recent Borland JBuilder instead of 4 or 5 open windows.
