Memorable Quotes

by Steve Jobs

"We want to bring Java back to the desktop in
a really big way. I'm here today to personally
tell you we are working hard to make Mac the
best Java delivery vehicle on the planet. The
biggest thing we are doing is we are going to
bundle Java 2 SE into every single copy of
Mac OS X”


“Java’s not worth building in. Nobody uses
Java anymore. It’s this big heavyweight ball
and chain.”

Latest Sun Executive BoardRoom Letter

By Jonathan Swartz

“I’ve always thought the words
thin client

were
oxymoronic”


“TVs got more interesting when they sprouted set top
boxes. Radio got more interesting when iPods came
along. And cell phones blossomed when you could
download games and ringtones to their resident Java
platform”


…compare Google Earth to Google Maps


Java Standard 6 edition …single biggest
improvement in the Java platform in years..

In the news…

The short form of the relationship is this
-

Intel has agreed to endorse and OEM from
Sun the open source Solaris OS. Just stop
there for a second. If you're an industry
watcher, that's a pretty big change for the
both of us. Intel has anointed Solaris as
The Mission Critical Unix for Intel/Xeon.
They're also endorsing, and we'll jointly be
optimizing, the NetBeans and Java
platforms, and working with us to fuel the
communities from which they spawn.
