 Sun's Software Revolution

I finally realized the revolution is on after reading about the Java Enterprise System in Fortune. I'd thought Sun's new software strategy was just the latest of the company's attempts at figuring out how to make money from Java. But there are three threads that together change the whole game. First is a practical, functional Linux desktop aimed at the business customer from a big and respected company. Second is a simple, attractive pricing model. Third is Sun's intention to commoditize enterprise end-user software. No matter how successful the Java Desktop System turns out, this last point ensures permanent change in the computer industry.
