"Recent articles and Borland/Inprise press announcements have stirred up a lot of questions lately. Perhaps the question on many Delphi and C++Builder developers' lips is 'Just what exactly is Kylix?' We diligently refer them to the Borland/Inprise Kylix press announcement and the Kylix Q&A article, but invariably the response is 'Yes, yes, that's all very nice, but that's marketing stuff. Where's the real info? What will the nuts and bolts look like? What will port, what won't?' "

"This is the first in a series of Borland community articles intended to brief you, the Delphi and C++Builder developer, on Kylix technical bits that you need to be aware of to prepare yourself and your code for possible porting or migration to the Linux universe. This is a briefing of directions, issues, and solutions currently under evaluation, not a technical specification cast in stone."
