Sun Lowers Price of Windows Desktop Competitor
Sun Lowers Price of Windows Desktop Competitor: "Sun this week slashed the price of its just-released Linux-based Java Desktop and Enterprise System, hoping to make the new system a more compelling alternative to Windows for corporations. Individual Java Desktop System setups will cost just $25, Sun says, while the full Java Enterprise System, which adds portal services, instant messaging, email, and directory services, will be slashed to half price, or $50 per seat, through mid-2004. The Java Desktop System runs Linux, the Ximian Desktop, and Sun Star Office, a solution Sun says is ready to take on Windows."
