"Janus Software is happy to announce the immediate release of Phoenix Object Basic, a Linux native Rapid Application Development tool, that combines "visual programming" with the familiar Basic programming language. VB developers will feel at home immediately with Phoenix."

"Recent market research has shown that there are about 7.5 million active VB developers and that around 40% of those developers want to develop for Linux this year. We are happy to be the first to market with a package that precisely meets their needs. It gives us great pleasure to be able to invite some 3 million developers to join the Linux community and be part of the Open Source revolution."

"Phoenix Object Basic is a unique object-oriented RAD tool for Linux. It combines the expressive power of object-oriented languages like Python and Perl with the familiarity and ease of use of Visual Basic. Phoenix allows developers with Visual Basic experience to start developing for Linux without having to face a steep learning curve: Phoenix uses the familiar visual design paradigm and has a full implementation of the Basic language."
