"The AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications is designed to build Linux applications that can take advantage of AIX's full range of capabilities. It also gives users more flexibility in deploying a mix of AIX and Linux applications for e-business solutions running natively under either AIX or Linux."

"What this does is offer a familiar Linux development environment to developers available under AIX, to do the full range of application development and recompilation,'' said Tilak Agerwala, vice president of AIX marketing and product management in Somers, N.Y."

"Once developed and deployed, the Linux-based applications are treated as native AIX applications, meaning they can access the same scalability and performance that the 64-bit operating system doles out to AIX applications, according to Agerwala."
