"Troll Tech and Inprise/Borland today announced a technology licensing agreement covering Troll Tech's Qt graphical user interface (GUI) application framework. As a result of the agreement, Inprise/Borland can leverage Qt in its forthcoming Delphi and C/C++ rapid application development (RAD) environment for Linux code named Kylix. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed."

"The Kylix project is planned to be the vehicle that delivers mass application availability for Linux," said Dale Fuller, interim president and CEO of Inprise/Borland. "With Kylix, developers will have the freedom of choice in Linux distributions and desktop environments for both Open Source and commercial applications development. Based on performance and cross-platform Linux and Windows support, Qt was the obvious choice for Kylix."

"We are fully committed to Linux. Our Qt technology is already the basis of KDE, the wildly popular graphical desktop environment for Linux," said Haavard Nord, CEO of Troll Tech. "This agreement further establishes Qt's position as the leading cross-platform GUI application framework. We are pleased to see Inprise/Borland provide this high quality of professional software development tools and services for Linux."
