KYLIX is currently not being developed by Borland.  I'm not even sure 
they're still supporting it OR selling it.  There is a guy that is currently 
providing patches for the product(third party), but KYLIX 3 is the last 
version so far.

I suspect that Borland is going to eventually drop KYLIX in favor of .NET 
and it's c# product.  There are strong indications that the MONO project 
will run vb.net, c#.net, etc, etc, etc, so there's no need for a delphi 
(pascal) compiler under Linux if true.
