Those with Windows and Macintosh versions of Realbasic 5.5 will now be able to create Linux desktop and server applications by migrating them from
applications written in Visual Basic.
"We've been cross-compiling for a number of years but this is the first version that supports Linux," said Geoff Perlman, president and CEO of Real
Software. "The Linux community really needs some easy-to-use tools to write applications if Linux is going to succeed on the desktop in the future."
