     "We are pleased that Borland is supporting the Apache Web server community
 with Kylix," said Roy Fielding, chairman of the Apache Software Foundation.
 "The Apache project encourages the adoption of our open-source software by
 commercial software vendors in order to give our community the broadest
 possible choice of tools and add-ons."
     Kylix developers will exploit NetCLX(TM), a web application component
 framework, to deliver their Apache Web Server applications to market faster.
 Kylix's state-of-the-art optimizing native-code compiler produces the highest
 performance web server applications.
     The NetCLX abstraction of web application programming interface services
 such as Apache DSO or CGI provides a direct migration path from Windows(R) to
 Linux for Borland Delphi(TM) web server applications.  Applications built for
 Windows web servers such as Microsoft(R), Netscape(R) and others are easily
 ported to Linux and the Apache web server with no application source code
     "Apache's performance, reliability and cross-platform availability have
 made it the most widely used Web server on the Internet," said Michael
 Swindell, director of product management, RAD Tools for Borland.  "With the
 introduction of the Kylix, software developers will bring native code
 performance and Linux/Windows cross-platform flexibility to the Apache Server.
 We believe Kylix will become the standard for high-performance,
 mission-critical Web applications development."
     Kylix NetCLX Web Development for the Apache Server includes:
     -- Rapid web server application development
     -- Ultra high-performance native code and Apache applications
     -- Component-based visual tools to maximize time to market and high
     -- Cross-platform Linux OS and Windows OS flexibility
     -- Simplified application migration from IIS and Netscape
