This article reports that Mainsoft Corp. and International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) are working together to expand the Linux ecosystem by helping Microsoft Corp. customers move to Linux.

Mainsoft is a cross-platform development company. It produces the Visual MainWin single source code development solution for .Net and J2EE. According to Yaacov Cohen, president and CEO of Mainsoft, the teaming agreement with IBM will open new opportunities for the company and it will be able to double its market. The company is also planning to launch Version 1.7 of Visual MainWin for J2EE. Visual MainWin can be used by C# and Visual Basic.Net developers to create and maintain Web and server applications on both platforms. Version 1.7 has also been validated on IBM's ServerProven program.
