Yes I have tried it. But I use Lazarus CodeTyphon incarnation form PilotLogic. This one is quite smooth and usable. It comes with a very large library of LCLs.

But when it comes to developing software commercially I prefer to use Delphi for building Linux and Mac OSX platforms using FMX as supplied with Delphi.
