Twisting in the wind?

I attended Borcon 2003 where it was apparent that Kylix was the
illegitimate child and that Borland was abandoning it.
Too bad, I applaud Borland for at least attempting to try to make
money in the Linux arena where developers are used to paying
Still to me, the concept of one language (Object Pascal) producing
an executable that can work under Linux, 32-bit Windows and
.NET (all achievable with Delphi today!) was a grand and worthwhile
(to me) vision.
Unfortunately I see the Linux side dropping out of the picture.
I regret this, although Borland has to respond to economic reality.
Probably no one was buying Kylix. Kylix is dead.
I think what Kylix is, it is and it will be no more than that.
