Abstract: Links to press articles and other information on Kylix and JBuilder's support for Linux

LinuxWorld Expo Report

In the Borland booth at the Jacob Javits Center in New York, New York, Borland launched Kylix on January 31st, 2001 at 4:00pm EST. The product received much attention from the attendees of the show, press, and other vendors in the show. In fact, Kylix was so impressive it won "Best Development Tool" at the show. The press found Kylix quite fascinating and a revolutionary step for Linux software development.

Kylix Press Coverage

The press was quite excited about what they saw. Most of these articles are about Kylix. Some are also about JBuilder running on the Linux platform. Here are some of the links I've gathered from newsgroup references and other Borland employees. Please respond to this article with more if you find them. Thanks!
