"Inprise Corp. will open the source code to its InterBase database to broaden distribution and boost sales of its development tools and application server, company executives said Monday."
"At the same time, Inprise intends to spin off the InterBase division into a separate company that will provide management and support for the open-source database while continuing development...."
"Inprise decided to establish a separate InterBase company that, as a startup, will be able to move faster in the growing Linux and open-source community than Inprise, Fuller said. Its potential to go public and enrich employees holding stock options should make it more attractive to top talent, he added."
