Berlind on JDS/Solaris

David Berlind of ZDNet has a long, long commentary on the Sun Java Desktop System (JDS) running on the Solaris platform today. Berlind generally has detailed and thoughtful pieces, and this one has some interesting views. I'm still digesting it, to be honest. I have JDS Release 3 on my Toshiba laptop on one of the latest builds of Solaris 10. So far, so good (well, a few quirks, to be honest, but I'm thrilled to be up and running).

I love Berlind's opening comment:

Something rather strange happened earlier this month. Sun released -- but did not announce -- a Solaris-based version of Release 2 of its Java Desktop System (JDS). Given the significance of JDS R2, for which a Linux-based version has existed since May 2004, why would Sun avoid drawing attention to this release?

Read on for the answer ... or at least Berlind's answer, anyway ...
