Is there a product similar to delphi 7 that I can compile my projects in UBUNTU 8.10?

if so, Could it  be a problem since I am using RX components in muy projects?

Thanks in advance.

    I own some older versions of Kylix, not sure If there is (a legal)  way to get this product .

    Other option: new  Delphi Prism , shoiuld be able to compile your application for MONO/UNIX

    Assisted Solution

    Delphi Prism uses a Delphi-like language called Oxygene.  This departure was done so that the code could be changed to allow all of the .NET / MONO capabilities.  As an example you can now declare variables inside the code block, and for loop variables MUST be declared within the FOR loop.  Being a .NET / MONO based product win32 VCL components will not work.  So, if you want a Delphi like language that will give you more capabilities than Delphi's Object Pascal (while being similar) that is also usable on Ubuntu, you should check it out.  If you want to recompile a Delphi 7 project under Ubuntu... it would be a lot of work.

    Kylix used a QT component set.  If you could easily swap the RX components for the QT components, you might be able to run with Kylix.

    BTW:  as I understood: Kylix is now freeware no longer supported by Borland/Inprise/embarcodo

    Delphi prism: better selection for professional software development due to support options and future 64 bit compiler version
