"A team of IBM summer interns has created a free, new tool that eases the task of writing Linux-based software. The tool, called "Sash Weblications," allows Web developers who don't have extensive programming experience to write software that runs on the increasingly popular Linux operating system."

"With Sash Weblications, Web developers who know Web programming languages such as JavaScript and DHTML can write simple software, such as for expense and sales reports, as well as games, without knowing Visual Basic, C++ or other complicated languages, said Dave Grossman, an IBM Distinguished Engineer."

"Software written with the Sash tool can run whether or not the PC is connected to the Internet, Grossman said. For example, an employee filling out an expense report while disconnected can simply log on and synch the data up to the corporate network, he said."
