"Inprise...announced a phenomenal response to the Linux version of JBuilder 3 Foundation Edition by the developer community. Since Inprise posted JBuilder 3 Foundation Edition last week, there have been more than double the number of downloads of the Linux version than of the Windows version of the product. In addition, Web traffic at the Inprise Web site has increased by four times above normal rate and is breaking the company's own records for page views and downloads...."

"The company announced the availability of the first JBuilder product to run on the Linux platform at the Java Business (SM) Conference in New York City on December 8. The product is available for free download at Inprise's Web site, www.borland.com/jbuilder."

"This overwhelming response proves that Java developers are very interested in a Java development tool for the Linux platform," said Dale Fuller, interim president and CEO of Inprise Corporation. "The free download is part of Inprise's continuing commitment to the Linux platform and effort to provide customers with the solutions they need to conduct business on the Internet. This is not just a trial or demonstration version, but a production quality tool that Java developers can use now to benefit from the power, performance and productivity of JBuilder across multiple platforms, including Linux, Solaris and Windows operating systems."
