LINA Source Code Released Under GPL v2 for Windows, Mac, and Linux Developers

LINA Source Code Released Under GPL v2 for Windows, Mac, and Linux Developers

ALAMEDA, Calif., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Lina Software released the source code for LINA under the GPL v2. LINA enables Linux binaries to run with native look and feel on Windows, Mac, and Linux, without recompiling. This release, along with the launch of our community website, http://www.openlina.org/, invites developers worldwide to participate in the growth of this important technology.

This release enables Linux command line and server applications to run natively, integrated into the underlying operating system. LINA is a thin virtual layer that enables developers to write and compile source code using ordinary Linux tools. With LINA, this compiled binary can then run on a variety of operating systems. For users, LINA runs invisibly in the background. Linux applications now appear as if they were built for the user's operating system.

The operating systems supported in this release include Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 2003, Mac OSX, Fedora 7, OpenSUSE 10.2, and Ubuntu 7.04. The LINA library currently supports C++ development. Future releases of LINA will support applications written in any language native to Linux.

"Open Source is pivotal to our rapid growth, and it's critical that we engage the worldwide developer community," said Nile Geisinger, CTO of Lina Software. "We're very interested in developer feedback as we improve usability."

Over the next several months, our engineers will focus on enhancing usability and incorporating community feedback. In Q4 2007, Lina Software will release developer binaries and application program interfaces for building cross-platform applications. We will also port the GTK and QT libraries to the LINA APIs to allow applications written to these libraries to run on LINA.

"Open Source collaboration is a powerful way to build a strong development community," said James McGreen, CEO and Founder of Lina Software. "With today's release, we expect to attract talented developers who are interested in writing applications that can run on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems."

For more information on the terms of the GPL version 2, and how to contribute to the Open Source LINA platform, please visit http://www.openlina.org/.

Lina Software brings Open Source to more users through innovative software solutions and technologies. LINA is currently the main focus of the company's engineering efforts. Lina Software is headquartered in Alameda, California. For more information, visit our website at http://www.openlina.com/.
