Sun Microsystems have a brand new goal they're shootin for. They want to bring out software that you can play on any system. You go to the store, buy a game, and you can play it on Xbox, PS2, PC, etc.. Wow, what a whacky world we live in.


From Sun Microsystems
Sun is partnering with leading companies in the electronic gaming industry to leverage the market's widespread adoption of the Java[tm] platform (http://www.sun.com/software/cover/2002-0104/)

P.S. I don't think this is old news, I just found out today.:rolleyes:

Don't get me started on Java. They've been making the same grandiose promises since the early nineties. Look at SUN's stock price for an indication of the future of Java. (not good)

I find the more obscure recent efforts by Amiga more interesting.
