Just general question.

I am relatively familiar with Delphi 5 and would like to know if it is possible to port executables to Linux?

Kylix. I haven't picked this up yet, but Kylix is Delphi for Linux. Check it out at Borland's site -

Like notlinus said, Kylix is good, I saw product at school before I left for summer, we had been learning Delphi so our profs were looking at Kylix to do RAD development for X (currently using Qt). Everyone seemed very impressed, it was like Delphi exactly, the Debugger and other tools we the same. The only difference of course is the controls which are specific to Windows. Database support is different, doesn't use the BDE etc. Some of your code should be portable to Kylix and recompiled, the only thing will be Windows specific stuff, ActiveX, OLE, networking etc... So if your code has those features you will have to make changes for it to run. But just a straight application should work with little problems. I haven't presonally tried it with a real project, we just all sat around and made simple apps.
