"Inprise/Borland is teaming with a range of unnamed venture capitalist organisations to fund the spinoff of a new company to house its Interbase database."
"Dale Fuller, Inprise/Borland's interim chief executive, said: 'By combining the Interbase technology with an experienced management team in a startup environment, we are enabling users to leverage the power of this world class database for multiple platforms.'
The firm will take some of the cash for the new venture from a $60 million fund that it announced in January to invest in startups that are developing applications based on Linux, Internet and wireless technology."
"Back in January, Inprise/Borland announced that the upcoming release, version 6.0, would support two more operating environments, Linux and Sun Microsystems' Solaris, on top of its traditional Microsoft Windows and Novell Netware platforms. The company also said it would release Interbase source code to the open source community."
