BW: Bristol Technology and SuSE Announce Partnership for Enabling Windows Applications on Linux

Apr 18, 2000, 08:20 (3 Talkback[s])

"Bristol Technology and SuSE Linux, one of the world's leading Linux providers, today announced a partnership to jointly promote Bristol's Wind/U for Linux cross-platform development software and Bristol's Linux Porting Center for SuSE Linux. Bristol's cross-platform software and services allow developers to quickly port Microsoft Windows applications to Linux. This new relationship will significantly help expand the number of applications on SuSE Linux."

"As our customers move to broader commercial use of Linux they will benefit from products such as Bristol's cross-platform software," stated Roland Dyroff, CEO of SuSE Linux AG. "Bristol's Wind/U and Linux Porting Center are helping to make many more applications available on SuSE Linux."

"Bristol's symbiotic relationship with SuSE will directly enhance the effectiveness of the SuSE ISVs by arming them with the software, training, and services they need to efficiently implement their applications on SuSE Linux," said Chane Cullens, Bristol's President. "SuSE is very strong in Europe and growing quickly worldwide. Bristol will leverage this growth and help fuel the Linux revolution with many new SuSE Linux applications." Wind/U for Linux enables developers to compile Microsoft Win32 API and MFC source code directly on SuSE Linux, and create native, desktop and server-based SuSE Linux applications. Wind/U supports Microsoft technologies such as MFC6 and COM. Hand-in-hand with Wind/U is Bristol's Linux Porting Center. The Porting Center leverages Bristol's expertise in porting millions of lines of code to the Linux Platform. The Porting Center provides hands-on training in Wind/U porting and native Linux development for a full service porting solution."
