"Kylix uses the same compiler as Delphi - that was written in
portable C - but since the libraries and the IDE itself were
written in Delphi, the rest fell into place. Borland is at pains to
stress that despite the close working relationship with Trolltech,
Kylix doesn't actually run on Qt, the Trolltech library, but simply
uses it as a display run-time portion. Since Qt and GNOME's Gtk
have become much more interoperable in the last few weeks, Kylix
can be considered neutral. Gtk objects can already be dropped onto
Qt-originated forms, for example."
"As well as parking its tanks on the RAD client/server lawn
- that's typically been Windows territory for both client and
development machines - Kylix should make the development of the
classic, vertical pet store applications more attractive. So
it's little wonder that Borland is talking to Caldera, which is in
the process of acquiring chunks of SCO's business. And SCO has
looked after such text mode vertical apps for small businesses, and
branches quite tenderly."
