Borland Software plans to offer a development environment specifically tailored to the Microsoft .net programming model early next year.

The interactive development environment, which is expected to face off against Microsoft's Visual Studio .net environment, will support Borland's Delphi development offering and feature .net programming wizards, a compiler and debugger specifically tuned to .net, said Ted Shelton, Borland senior vice-president of business development and chief strategy officer.
