What's cooking?

by Volker Weber

Sun is holding a joint press conference with Google at 10:30 PST (19:30 CEST). Lots of speculations:

Mesdames, messieurs, faites vous jeux.

Update: Google will make Sun stuff available, that has been available before (Java, OpenOffice).


The invite says : "to discuss joint activities".

I think that it would rule out speculation 4.

The speculations do appear in a particular order. ;-)

Why not 4? If you think about it, not that stupid. Google might really open Sun to Linux... and fight Microsoft head on.
Nb 3 would be more or less the equivalent of 4, wouldn't it? ;-)

Here you go:
More like Option 1, I'd say.

Kevan Emmott, 2005-10-04

Actually, less than that. I guess it hints at the possibility of future work together. Getting Java to more desktops is a necessary step, I suppose, but you'd think they'd have something available (say from here, perhaps) at the time of the announcement.

They also have to be careful how much the tack on when people may just want the toolbar.
