"The Kylix initiative was officially launched on 28 September, 1999 when Inprise/Borland issued a news release describing the product as 'a high-performance Linux application-development environment that will support C, C++, and Delphi development.' It began with the Borland on-line Linux survey during the summer 1999, in which over 10,000 programmers asked for a Linux version of Delphi."

"The project code-named Kylix is intended to be the first high-performance RAD tool for Linux, enabling developers familiar with the tools to build native Linux applications and for Windows applications built with them to be ported to Linux relatively easily."

"Kylix is not a port of Delphi and CBuilder but a new product using entirely Linux standards and Linux components while incorporating the best features of the Borland Windows development tools. The Borland Linux tools are being developed in tandem with the next version of Windows-based Delphi and CBuilder tools. Kylix will leverage the functions within those integrated-development environments and share the visual component library within their frameworks."
