Sun Goes After the Microsoft Desktop

By Deane Barker on September 16, 2003

Sun to unveil MS-displacing software for business desktops: This is good to hear.

“In a move aimed squarely at Microsoft, Sun Microsystems on Tuesday will unveil a suite of software for businesses that want to dump — or just can’t afford — the Windows operating system on their companies’ desktop computers.

The Sun Java Desktop system, which was formerly code-named Mad Hatter, runs on the open-source Linux operating system and includes a variety of other programs that replace Microsoft’s Internet browser, productivity suite and other parts of the Windows package.”
