JDS for Solaris 9 x86
By Calum on Oct 15, 2004
Hasn't had a great deal of publicity yet, but Sun released its first version of the Java Desktop System for Solaris last week-- specifically, for Solaris 9 on Java Workstations (although it should work on other S9 x86 installations too). Pricing is the same as the Linux version, at $50 per seat.
Although it's nominally called JDS version 2 (to coincide with the version number of the most recent Linux release), it actually offers quite a few improvements over its Linux sibling, not least from its foundations in a more recent version of GNOME.
