Hello. What is the difference between Lazarus and MVD? In screenshots the interface looks very similar and it seems they're both based on something called Delphi? Can someone explain?
The difference is that MVDB is a specialized environment optimized for creating a specific class of applications, namely: applications for working with databases MySQL and SQLite. It has a built-in report builder (FastReport) and database structure editor. And Lazarus is a universal development environment for any applications. As a result of these differences, development approaches and the speed of creating applications differ. In Lazarus, you can do everything, but slowly. In MVDB you can do fast, but only the above types of applications.
In a sense, MVDB is similar to Access - you can create data structures and forms to manage them.
