"Inprise/Borland this week hosted more than 200 third-party authors, consultants, trainers and tool and component vendors for the first in a series of worldwide events designed to prepare third party products and services for Kylix. Also participating were leading Linux distributors including MandrakeSoft, TurboLinux, Corel, Caldera and SuSE. Announced in September 1999, Project Kylix will be a high performance Linux rapid application development environment that will support Delphi, C and C++."

"'The same way that RAD tools, like Delphi and Visual Basic, set off an explosion of applications for Windows in the mid-90s, Kylix is planned to set off the next wave of mass Linux adoption,' said Dale Fuller, interim president and CEO, Inprise/Borland. 'There are millions of developers worldwide that are waiting for Kylix.'"
