Curious - what was our alternate route?
I will be needing to some things on Linux soon too.

I am not looking for support here. My comment was really about
developing an application using supported tools. When you are about to
commit 300k for development of a new application you want to make sure
that the vendor has committed to the future of the product. While it is
true Borland has not stated anywhere that there would not be another
kylix release, most people believe that sales have not been as expected.
The lack of commitment on kylix has led many people to look for an
alternative development environment for Linux. We know that Delphi
(Windows), and I know that this is not the Delphi NG, will be supported
for future releases. The next version is slated for 4th quarter this
year. For this up coming project we decided to take an alternate route
because Kylix is not even supported on RH8 and we are not going to fight
with unsupported fixes, etc.

AFAIK, RemObjects does have a Kylix version.
