Sun 'Reveals All' vis-a-vis Java Desktop System
Sun 'Reveals All' vis-a-vis Java Desktop System

Not for nothing is Jonathan Schwartz Sun's software supremo. Reporting directly to Scott McNealy, Schwartz was charged 15 months or so ago with nothing short of the total reengineering of Sun's software strategy. Speaking today on the opening day of Sun's now-quarterly release event, SunNetwork, Schwartz took the wraps off his thinking about the market opportunity that exists for Sun on the desktop.

Security is the key, according to Schwartz. When his field team asked Sun customers the following question: "If you could have another desktop than the one you currently use what would it look like?" their answers were, in order of priority, that it needed to be secure, needed to be interoperable, and needed to be familiar in its look-and-feel.

The 'Java Desktop System' is Sun's response to these customers. "A Linux distro that uses the talents of many Sun people," as one Sun insider puts it. Schwartz demo'ed it flawlessly, using StarOffice 7.0 to open - what else? - Microsoft's Form 10-K filing on the Microsoft Web site, from which Word document he proceeded deftly to extricate the balance sheet line entry "Long term unearned revenue." (Needless to say, the figure was huge: $13,974,000,000 in 2003 alone.)

JavaCard support will be built into the desktop that Sun is offering, on the basis that strong authentication would eliminate spam and viruses. Whereas "Anonymity breeds mischief," as Schwartz succinctly put it.

"We think this offers an interesting opportunity to change the dynamics of the marketplace," Schwartz added. The pricing model he unveiled was inoovative: $100 per desktop or $50 per employee, i.e. one-tenth of the cost of Microsoft Office.

Schwartz then waved up onto the keynote platform Kim Stevensen, Global Offerings Executive, Desktop & Mobility Services at EDS - who dutifully chipped in with the comment that, seen from her perspective, there were hundreds and millions of "over-featured" desktops in the world - whereas what she caled "transaction workers" had a different set of needs to the "power knowledge worker" and would therefore be better served by a system such as Sun was offering, where data can be accessed 100% over the network using a Java smartcard for authentication, and without needing any hard drive, any fan, or any floppy disk.

Cool or what?

With all due respect, Ed Tijaplak, doesn't look like you've had to actually run major IT operations.

The kind of system Sun has drummed up is precisely the kind of configuration that would be preferable for rolling out to scads of, say, call-center workers. I loathed having to have my admin staff support Windows 2K Pro or XP, and MS Office loaded, for that venue of the user base. There's a huge swath of computer worker profile where the IT admin world is eagerly waiting for somebody to do it right. Sun is definitely on the right path with their approach for this particular segment of the user base.

It just utterly amazes me that Microsoft hasn't figured this out after all these years. But really, Microsoft's primary concern is keeping the per user\unit royalty stream as high as possible for as long as possible. Hence they inevitably coax IT shops, through various circumstance, into loading up user machines that are way too overly configured for the intended use. (And the more highly configured the more of a support issue and more of a potential security concern.)

I have a great deal of respect for Sun, and its immense contribution to enterprise computing and software development. I just fervently hope this is not Sun's answer to pulling the company out of the doldrums its in right now.

>> "... whereas what she caled "transaction workers" had a different set of needs to the "power knowledge worker" and would therefore be better served .."

What a great message to send to your potential user community - 'hey, you're just a brain dead keyboard puncher so here's a product that will let you fulfill your purpose in our company - being a serf ! Yes, that's a great notion on which to make a competitive case for a product.

Okay, yes - there are workers who's primary job role is to key in repititive transactions. But one has to wonder what use an office productivity suite would be to that user base. Users that perform data entry intensive work almost always use specialized business applications (e.g an order entry apps, shop floor parts tracking tools, etc.), and spend little or no time creating documents, or presentations. And if that's not the kind of user Ms. Stevensen had in mind, what is the target user base then ? How then does a business differentiate between its 'transaction workers' and 'power knowledge workers' ? And then what ? You deploy a hybrid desktop environment where your 'power' users run one suite of apps and the rest use something else on a different OS ?

IMHO no IT professional in their right mind would go for this thin terminal concept. The security aspect is a very compelling argument - no doubt. But interoperability would need to be nothing less than perfect for this to be a viable business proposition, and that kind of seamlessness never happens.

Sun has scored hugely in the enterprise arena with its Java technology. Seems like there's a great deal remaining in the enterprise space worth going after. Sure, the Java Desktop System maybe 'cool', and what good does that do Sun ? I thought the Office war was fought quite some time back (remember Corel ??).

I guess I must be missing Sun's strategic angle here, because it overall, competing with MS in this space just sounds like a strange idea. But then again, that's probably because I'm one of those 'transaction' types. Now if I were a 'power knowledge' type .. oh, well ;-)

Cool or what? - was the question!

Use of a stripped down PC - does'nt it remind you of the green screen terminals connected to the big iron?

MS Word itself does not handle bullet points and indents very well. :P

Just tried out Openoffice 1.1 RC4. Impressive. The import filter for MS Word still doesn't cope with certain complex documents however. It had a problem with indented bullet points.

If they can correct the filters, this will truly be a great competitor to MS Office. Expecially with the really snazzy PDF export feature....Very nice!

Totally agree! Just had a look at OpenOffice.org yesterday - very nice.

Yes, but will StarOffice be able to open MSOffice documents AFTER they change over to a "non-standard standard." Read this
article about how Microsoft is creating it's own proprietary, closed protocol standard for use with their P2P services. It plans to do the same with Microsoft Word documents. If you even try and reverse engineer the format, you are eligible for jail and/or hefty fine because you will be in violation of the DMCA (talk about flawed legislation)!

If Sun was smart, and it appears they are, it's time to seize whatever market share is leftover once Microsoft loses massive market due to it's silly closed protocol/formats and outrageous licensing fees (thrown in OS instability for kicks). By flavoring their own Linux, they are giving Linux even more credibility.

I think they should abandon StarOffice and put all their weight behind OpenOffice, or whatever office suite is the open-source based standard. Sun has what it takes to make OpenOffice a real competitor to MSOffice.

No, it probably won't run Dreamweaver and Flash, but if you install Wine, you might be able to configure it to run them. If this is truly a Linux based product, you should be able to install and run a number of decent Website Creation tools like Quanta Gold from www.TheKompany.com or even the free version of Quanta Plus. (Do a search and you should find them.)

Why would you want to run MS Frontpage?

I want to know if other applications would run on it, such as Macromedia's Dreamweaver, Flash etc.

Will StarOffice run MS FrontPage?

Yep - Open Office and Star Office both do that now. They even have a Basic editing environment. Star basic is very similar to VBA.

Yhah, but will StarOffice run or somehow convert MS VB Excel/Word macros to run at all?

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
