Been a While
By user9157252 on Sep 13, 2004
Ok, so it's been a while since I've posted anything on my blog, but that doesn't mean I haven't been doing anything. In fact, I have been working and thinking a great deal about thhis issue of a "Next Generation Thin Client" for the entire time, and writing internal documents and on and on about it.
It isn't as easy as it looks to define a project in Sun Labs and then begin working on it. There are innumerable things that have to be considered.
But the idea of a nex-generation thin client is definitely something that I'm working on. I have read (and heard) some crazy ideas about what a next-gen Thin Client should or could look like. Some of them are so far out in left field that they could catch a Barry Bonds Home Run. Some are just crazy enough that they could work. Most are not a big enough step forward to justify doing them. Incremental steps are not what we're after here. We're after revolutionary not evolutionary. Anyone can do evolutionary. People look to Sun to do revolutionary, and that's just what we plan to deliver!
More later, but please keep those wild and wacky ideas coming!!!
