"At the Linux World Conference & Expo, Inprise Corporation...today announced its commitment to support the Linux platform. The company announced the immediate availability of VisiBroker for Linux, a new version of its award-winning object request broker, and is demonstrating JBuilder for Linux, its upcoming Java development tool, on the showroom floor at Linux World."

"In addition, Inprise is releasing the complete results of its Linux developer survey, in which over 24,000 respondents indicated that Linux is a critical operating system for their customers moving forward. The results also indicate that the majority of developers participating in the survey are planning application development and client server database development projects on Linux. According to a recent report by International Data Corporation, because applications drive operating system sales, having more applications available on Linux will drive Linux in Enterprise computing."

"We have now been shipping InterBase for Linux for over a year. With today's announcement of VisiBroker for Linux, customers now have access to a Linux version of a leading CORBA ORB for distributing and deploying applications across multiple platforms," said Dale Fuller, interim president and CEO of Inprise Corporation. "Based on the tremendous feedback from our survey, we are also assessing which additional tools and technologies Inprise will be extending to this expanding market."
