Maybe you're interested in xwpe (X window programming environment)
which delivers quite a good look & feel of TP7 (DOS). There's
xwpe for X, and wpe for text mode. But I haven't used it for
many many years, so I can't say something about its current
state and development.

If I raise my head, I can see the "Borland TurboPascal 7" box
and manuals on the shelf above my CRT. The day I got it as a
present was the day I didn't code TP anymore, and switched
to C as my primary language. I hope nobody will give me a C
box as a present. :-) But it's okay, I deserved it, because
my TP coding was completely awful - obfuscation in its finest
form, completely unintended. :-)
