Sun Studio 11 - for free

First I noticed this announcement I was suprised. I remember that Sun Studio cost lot of money and they are giving it for free now. Are they crazy? but they aren't. We(SUN) have a V I S I O N. It started with NetBeans. Now we have so much tools for free and even operating system with OpenOffice. Wow. I won't rather not read my previous sentences 'cause it seems to me like a marketing guy letter but it isn't...

Back to Sun Studio 11. I was curious what NetBeans version is it build on. I remember that I participated on testing of previous versions of Sun Studio 9 and 10 - they were build on NetBeans 3.5 I expected that version 11 should be build on something newer... FYI it is still builded on NetBeans 3.5
Well, I know that they schedule is little bit different from NetBeans' schedule (which is a little bit tought) but why this C++/Fortran guys always get stucked. There has been three next releases 3.6, 4.0, 4.1 Isn't it time to switch? I expect that customers of Sun Studio are some hardcore programmers that like the emacs, vi and command line most but these will ignore the change anyway...

Comments:

Hi Lukas, <p/> There's an early adapter version, or TPR as SUN likes to call it, of the new SUN Studio Enterprise IDE. It seems to be using NB 5 or maybe 4.1 (can't make it out). Extensive SOA support is there, hopefully the new MobPack can be used with it, but probably not. Hopefully the SOA support will run on NB5, but probably not. <p/> Hope SUN will converge now with the whole FREE IDE spirit NB development with their added functionality as modules.
