Advanced Sun Java[TM] Desktop System Features and More Previewed at LinuxWorld

Desktop technologies, enterprise software and hardware and Linux
development tools are three key areas Sun is concentrating on in its
next-generation products and roadmaps for Linux support of the Sun
Java[TM] Enterprise System, Sun Java[TM] Studio development tools and
new AMD Opteron processor-based x86 systems. These innovations were
previewed at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo held January 20-23, 2004.

Sun continues to be a leading contributor in the Linux community,
providing value on top of Linux through new infrastructure and desktop
software systems.

The innovations previewed at the conference include the next version of
the Sun Java[TM] Desktop System, future management features for the Sun
Java Desktop System that allow full control over the desktop experience,
Linux on ultra-thin Sun Ray[TM] client systems and a radical new
three-dimensional (3-D), Java[TM] technology-based PC interface (code
named "Project Looking Glass").

The Sun Java Enterprise System also was previewed. Plans are for it to
be supporting the Linux operating system on Intel Xeon systems and AMD
Opteron processor-based x86 servers as part of the Sun and AMD alliance
announced in November 2003.

Another new strategy presented was a future new developer desktop
solution that combines Sun's new Java Studio Creator (code-named
"Project Rave") with the Java Desktop System and the NetBeans[TM] IDE.
