One more nation for the Startup Essentials Program. Sweden joins the US and 7 other nations in the program that makes hardware and software available at very discounted prices for startups.

GlassFish support (GFB) is included in SSE - see this earlier TA entry.

According to OnTheRecord, there have been over 2,300 applications to SSE.

The Sun Startup Essentials (SSE) program aims to provide all the essentials needed by startups, including: Free Software and Services and Discounted Systems, Storage and Partner Hosting. GlassFish is included in the deal: you will get free developer assistance from the SSE team (which works closely with GF engineers), and - of course, GlassFish is free Right-to-Use.

In addition to the US the program is available in 7 other countries so far: India, China, Israel, France, Germany, Canada and now also in the United Kingdom.

The program has a 93% satisfaction rating; check it out and provide your Feedback.

Added - I just saw the announcement on the new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor-based blades (Blog, PR) - they look nice, and I believe they will be included in SSE in the "near" future.
