Kylix 3.0 Enterprise (with C++)
Borland introduced Delphi for Windows a long time ago, with many of the Kylix features. Years later they introduced the C++ Builder for Windows, which as the name suggests, was the C++ version of Delphi. It is nice that a C++ edition of Kylix for Linux is finally here. All in all, I like the design of Kylix. Despite the fact that it's not a new concept, it still has benefits.
After playing around with Kylix some more I found a few bugs in the software. When trying to assign images to components, the application would freeze. I am guessing it's possibly some sort of synchronization issue because attaching to the Kylix process with strace brought it back to life. I also found that the code-completion window sometimes refused to pop up. To put things in perspective I must say that Kylix was not certified to run on the distribution that I had freshly installed on my laptop. I used SuSE 8.1, although Kylix 3.0 was certified to run on SuSE 7.3.
As a final thought, if you are looking into evaluating development tools for enterprise applications I would recommend putting Kylix 3.0 on your “tools to evaluate” list.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
