    I agree, Linux is not really aimed at the mainstream, more at power users and administrators. But some people like it that way and others don't. I think once there is major software support, the MS tyranny will be overthrown.

    mwa ha ha ha
    Kylix is a RAD programming environment (Object Pascal) for Linux. It is based around the existing Delphi VCL (Visual Component Library) but rebadges it as KLX (I think! but don't know what it stands for) and will enable people to create source code which can be compiled and run on either Windows based systems and Linux based systems.

    There are many Delphi developers in this world (not as many as C++) that are simply going to be able to switch from Delphi x.xx to Delphi 6 which has the support built in for the KLX.

    It really is going to revolutionize the way applications are written for Linux (as soon as it takes off). There are still many companies who are a bit scared of placing all their eggs in one basket, (Borland) especially as they tend to be in the red/black from one week to the next. Also, Object Pascal isn't an incredibly popular language (which doesn't make sense!!!) as C++ is the most popular language in commercial use today.

    Personally, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it hits the big time.

    Windows 2000 Professional SP2. Personally, I am happy with what I have and am waiting to upgrade to XP Professional after Second Edition comes out...

    I have heard a lot of stories with people who have upgraded to XP not having their hardware being recognized with XP. I think it has a lot of compatability measures to improve before I will use it.
