Metrowerks attempts to bypass 'Red Hat doesn't equal Linux' flack

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Programming environment developer Metrowerks today said it will offer its CodeWarrior Integrated Development Environment for SuSE's Linux distribution. The move follows criticism Metrowerks recently took for branding the Red Hat Linux version of CodeWarrior as 'CodeWarrior for Linux'. That, said many Linux advocates, suggested Red Hat's Linux was the official version of the open source OS. It isn't, of course, though many open sourcers claim that's how Red Hat is positioning its product as it becomes a fully commercial entity. Still, it's good news for SuSE developers, providing them with a robust, easy-to-use commercial-quality IDE. The port will include CodeWarrior's full set of tools, including editors, browsers, project management facilities, compilers, debuggers and other development tools within a powerful and easy-to-use graphical development environment. The product will ship in two versions, just like the Red Hat release. A cut-down GNU edition hooks the CodeWarrior IDE into the GNU compilers and debuggers. The Professional version adds Metrowerks' own C, C++ and Java integrated compilers and debuggers. The GNU version will ship next month, the Professional version before the end of the year, putting both versions a couple of months behind the Red Hat releases. ®
