"Inprise/Borland revealed on Monday in an announcement at the Linux Business Expo conference in Las Vegas that it is working to further the GNOME Foundation's cause. The Scotts Valley, Calif.-based tools vendor is joining the GNOME Foundation Advisory Board, which consists of IBM, Hewlett-Packard, and Red Hat, and fosters development of the GNOME (GNU Network Object Model Environment) desktop environment and application framework."

"Inprise/Borland will support the GNOME desktop interface within its open-source RAD (rapid application development) tools, code-named Kylix."

"Our goal for the first release is to be GNOME-aware. Kylix will be able to adopt the GNOME look and feel," said Michael Swindell, Inprise/Borland's director of product marketing."
