"Conceived in 1999, Borland Software Corp.'s long-awaited Kylix development tool for Linux will be in customers' hands by the end of February."

"Borland is slated to announce this Wednesday at Linux World in New York that Kylix will be released Feb. 15. The release also marks the first time that Borland is releasing a product for Linux first and Windows second. The Windows version is due out at the beginning of the second quarter, said Ted Shelton, Borland's senior vice president and chief strategy officer, in Scotts Valley, Calif."

"This is really a native development tool so it runs very, very fast," Shelton said. "People can start building applications right away in Linux." The goal of Kylix is to bring the power and ease of visual programming to the Linux community, he said."
