Sun Professes Faith in Java for the Linux Community

Sun Microsystems this week vowed more support for Java development tools running on Linux and discussed the potential for
Linux at the desktop level.

Sun development tools group marketing manager Jeff Anders said at the LinuxWorld trade show that the Santa Clara, Calif. outfit sees opportunities for
Linux and Java combinations on customers' desktops as an alternative to Microsoft Windows.

The Linux on desktops concept was touted by Novell CEO Jack Messman in a keynote Wednesday. Anders said Sun feels Novell's assertion that Linux on
desktops will see a significant hike this year is accurate.
