Sun Ray at Dublin Institute of Technology

Very cool story here about the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) School of Computing installing a Sun Ray system -- Dublin Institute of Technology installs thin client computer lab. Damien Farnham has more on the project, but it's cool to see that students were involved in the implementation and that the Irish OpenSolaris User Group holds meetings there.

According to the article, "The SunRay laboratory will provide staff and students with access to Solaris 10, Suse LINUX and Microsoft Windows." And it's also great to see comments about the importance of UNIX skills in education as well -- "It is not reasonable to expect computing graduates to be competitive upon entering the workforce if they are not equally competent in using Unix and Windows systems, said Mark Deegan, lecturer at the DIT School of Computing. "We must present students with equal opportunity to develop desktop and system administration skills on both Windows and Unix systems."

Japan: Aizu University Photos

I went with the Sun Japan team to the University of Aizu this weekend for a series of hands-on workshops and presentations on Java and OpenSolaris and an OpenSolaris install-fest with the latest Solaris Express Developer Edition. Schedule in Japanese and English. I also had a chance to play around with the very cool new Sun Ray Notebook (article in Japanese), which I think would work quite well right here in my apartment (hint, hint). 135 photos on flickr and below ...

A New Sun Ray Fan?

A potential Sun Ray fan here with eWeek's Sean Gallagher?

Sun Ray looks pretty solid -- solid enough, at least, when paired with Trusted Solaris for the Navy to use it onboard one of its command ships, and for it to gain a substantial foothold in the Defense Department’s intelligence operations. And with all of DoD using Java Card-based identification soon, the Sun Ray meshes nicely with their overall security planning.

And for the rest of the world, Sun’s solution is getting a bit more attractive as well. The Java Desktop System interface is at least familiar to most computer users, and the StarOffice suite gets close enough to the rich Windows desktop to make Sun’s thin client -- which is Sun’s standard corporate desktop internally -- a better contender.

JDS on my Sun Ray!

Very nice, guys. I came in this morning looking forward to my new desktop, and I'm thrilled. I now have Sun's Java Desktop System (JDS) on my Sun Ray. I guess they upgraded the servers last nite. Pretty slick! And it's pretty quick, too.
