Hi Angus,

I'm running Linux Mint on all my machines for some years. I did not upgraded Delphi because I do not much programming latest years (I run D5, D7 and XE on separate VM's). So I'm not interested to buy a new Delphi version. However I be glad to help if I can do some test on Linux machines.

Best regards, Wilfried

Met vriendelijke groeten,
Wilfried Mestdagh

Many will be aware the next release of Delphi will be supporting the

The Linux version will use the LLVM compiler already used for iOS which
ICS supports, so in theory it should not be a major effort to add Linux
support for ICS, easier than Android.   There are changes, like 1 based
strings instead of 0 for mobile.

Unfortunately, all the ICS iOS development was done by Arno who has not
been able to contribute for a few years, neither I nor Francois have
real Linux experience, and I'm really too old to learn new operating
systems or compilers...

So if ICS is to support Linux, we need some assistance from one or more
people, who probably want to implement Delphi server applications on
Linux.  This work can start immediately with a beta of the next Delphi

Any interest in Linux?
