 InstallShield X and Linux

"It just becomes another way of deploying software, and the secret isn't so much in the package it's how you get to create that package and the quality and consistency of the creation process. So we see RPM and other native delivery mechanisms as just the payload. The secret sauce is in creating that payload, and creating all the logic and dependencies and exception checking around it, to make sure that it does exactly what you want to do. I guess to summarize a short answer to what was pretty pointed question, we've already been fighting a battle for a couple of years getting over our market perception as a Windows-only tool and we've been fighting that battle by consistently releasing good products over time, and I think we're starting to see the payoff from that investment with InstallShield X."
