Oct 16, 2001, 18:17 (23 Talkback[s])
"Borland Software Corporation (NASDAQ:BORL) , a leading provider of e-business platform solutions, today announced that its rapid application development (RAD) environment for the Linux platform, Borland Kylix, has been ranked as the most used integrated development environment (IDE) by Linux developers. The research was conducted and published by Evans Data Corporation, a market research firm focused on the software development community.

The Evans Data Linux Developer Survey, Volume II, 2001 found that Kylix is already in use by a significant percentage of developers. "For a long time, many developers with extensive Windows experience have considered the tools on Linux to be primitive," said Lou Grinzo, Evans Data Linux analyst. "Now that a serious, full-featured development environment has been ported to Linux, developers jumped on it with both feet. This is part of the conversion of Linux programmers to more modern methods that will ease the way for Windows developers moving to Linux."

"The results of the Evans Data survey confirm that Kylix is the best-in-class offering that is gaining rapid acceptance as the development environment of choice for Linux developers," said Simon Thornhill, vice president and general manager of RAD solutions for Borland. "As Linux continues to emerge as a mainstream operating system, Kylix is uniquely positioned to enable enterprises of all sizes to develop industry leading applications."
