INPRISE/BORLAND'S KYLIX PROJECT BUILDS STRONG THIRD PARTY NETWORK FOR LINUX
First Event Attracts More Than 200 Authors, Consultants, Trainers and Tool and Component Vendors
SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. -- March 24, 2000 -- Inprise/Borland (Nasdaq:INPR) this week hosted more than 200 third-party authors, consultants, trainers and tool and component vendors for the first in a series of worldwide events designed to prepare third party products and services for Kylix. Also participating were leading Linux distributors including MandrakeSoft, TurboLinux, Corel, Caldera and SuSE. Announced in September 1999, Project Kylix will be a high performance Linux rapid application development environment that will support Delphi, C and C++.
"The same way that RAD tools, like Delphi and Visual Basic, set off an explosion of applications for Windows in the mid-90s, Kylix is planned to set off the next wave of mass Linux adoption," said Dale Fuller, interim president and CEO, Inprise/Borland. "There are millions of developers worldwide that are waiting for Kylix. This week's successful event is the beginning of our campaign to build the corporate infrastructure and a mass-market product and support network for Linux application development."
"Application availability is the next step required for the rapid adoption of Linux," said Daniel Morales, CEO of US operations for MandrakeSoft, distributors of the Linux-Mandrake™ operating system. "From this event, Kylix is clearly generating enthusiasm for Linux in the third party development community. That's exciting!"
