"Tools and middleware vendor Inprise Corp. last week said the next version of its database, Interbase 6, will support both Linux and Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Solaris operating systems. The software so far supports only Microsoft Corp.'s Windows and Novell Inc.'s NetWare operating systems."
"In the spirit of Linux and what the open-source community stands for, the company also plans to open the Interbase source code, executives said."
"Inprise will be taking a leadership role in the open-source movement by releasing Interbase 6 under an open-source license," said Dale Fuller, interim chief executive and president of Inprise, which acquired Interbase."
