For the Zero use the text based IDE fp, is comes with fpc.
Laz is not needed for those fpc package examples either.
The PiCore TC Desktop is the only one I'm happy with on single core Pi's.
The zero W runs Raspbian full desktops pretty ok, with a slight optimization of the OS, and an overclock.
I do run it at 1024x600 pixels, or 720p, which allows me to run a GUI with 24-32MB of Vram. Freeing some RAM memory.
It does load a bit slow, and doesn't compile very fast, but most other things it does quite well.
It's more of a proof of concept that it can be done, on a $15 PC!
I doubt TC will make a big difference, as loading times don't change, and Raspbian desktop uses less than 1% of CPU to run.
The issue with tc is program compatibility. Finding up to date, good coding editors or IDEs on that is hard (if not web based).
