"Dedicated in-house developers have always found ways to build business applications for multiple platforms, but it's rarely easy to do. Java managed to capture the minds of corporate programmers by providing a nearly effortless bridge between supported platforms."

"Kylix, the Linux edition of Borland's popular Delphi language and programming environment, will soon offer companies an alternative to Java that is far easier to learn and produces faster applications."

"Like Java, Kylix provides Linux developers with well-stocked libraries of user interface, database, Web, and network functions that exactly match those implemented in Windows. Kylix also shares Java's large pool of experienced programmers, appealing to coders familiar with Delphi, C/C++, and Visual Basic."
