That's a pitty.

Well.... yes and no.
Kylix relies in 3 different versions.

1 server edition (commercial)
1 desktop editon (commercial)
1 Open Edition (GPL) but all the programs you make with this
   version you must make the GPL-licence. This version is
   a free version as long as your written program is Open Source.

I downloaded the Open Distribution (and the company bought the
Destop Edition) and it looks as the same as visual basic for windows.
There is a difference between the commands in this two programming-
languages but if you ever programmed in VB or VBA, Kylix feels very
comfortable to use... developing software has never been that easy
in Linux i suppose.
