OpenSolaris and JavaFX – Sun's busy week

By   |  December 5, 2008

Sun may be getting a bit of a hammering on the markets but the company is still keeping itself busy. Over the past two days Sun has released not one but two major releases: OpenSolaris 2008.11 and JavaFX.

In the first, Sun rolled out OpenSolaris 2008.11. The latest release of Sun’s open source version of its Solaris operating system includes GNOME 2.24, Firefox 3, Songbird and OpenOffice.org 3. The applications more specific to OpenSolaris include the Image Packaging System which has a new look. OpenSolaris developers also say that the OS will boot a lot faster than previously, something everyone in the market is trying to get right.

See Internet News blogs for more on OpenSolaris 2008.11.

In the second big release of the week, Sun released JavaFX, a new version of the Java programming language that is apparently easier to use as well as being well-suited to rich media Internet applications.

To some extent this sounds a lot like Sun’s original plans for Java more than a decade ago: a multi-platform system that can be run anywhere. Of course all those years ago Java lost out to the more lightweight Javascript and today JavaFX is just one of a good handful of such platforms, including Silverlight, Adobe Air and Flash and the open source Moonlight.

    Solaris booting faster?!! OMGAWDS! so it only takes, what, an hour now?! =o P

    OpenSolaris is the slowest booting OS. ever. Even slower than the (probable) linux that is JUST a boot screen.

    Urgh.
