I've tried the recently released open edition of Borland's Kylix 3. It looks nice, and completely identical to the windows equivalent C++ Builder which I've been using to develop Rodney's vision system.

Actually, I chose C++ Builder precisely becase I knew that Borland were developing a Linux version. This should mean that I can port Rodney's code to linux with minimal effort, whilst not losing the modern drag and drop type development.

There are a couple of unknowns when dealing with Linux. Firstly is the question of how does video for linux work, and does it support simultaneous access of two cameras. Secondly is the question of how serial comms works under linux. Under windows I'm using the MScomm control, and presumably there is something equivalent in linux.
