Forgive me if this is well known, but I haven't managed to track down the
answer on sun.com.  Is the Java Desktop System available for Sparc
platforms now, perhaps as part of Solaris 10?  I see links to purchase it
for Linux and x86, but what about Sparc?

Java Desktop System #2
"The Java Desktop System, Release 2 license to use the desktop client and system management software is perpetual.

Sun always say it costs US$100/per year, but that sounds MUCH more expensive than US$100 plus US$100/year of future upgrade protection. What's going on? Is Sun's marketing inept or what is missing here? ...

Keyboard problems with Java Desktop System
I have installed Solaris 10 on a SunFire V100, and also on a 280R. I am attempting to open a remote X session to these from a laptop with Solaris 9 'x86, and from an SGI Indigo2. This seems to work okay when I choose CDE, but the Java Desktop System doesn't respond to any keyboard input. The mouse works fine. Has anyone got any ideas as to what might be the cause of this? Also, something I think is unrelated, but who knows. When using the smc under Solaris 10, I don't seem to be able to enter passwords when prompted. E.g., I click on the Users icon, so I can add a user. It o...

Resetting the Java Desktop System on Solaris 10
Hello there. I have a Solaris 10 host where the desktop env appears to be mis-configured. If any app is minimized, rather than appearing in the panel at the bottom, the app is minimized to the bottom right where the workspace switcher, volume ctrl etc are. But the app is no longer visible. Nor is its icon underneath the above-mentioned icons on the panel. :-( Can I reconfigure or reset the desktop to get the default behaviour (app icons appear on the bottom panel) ?

So what replaces the Sun Java Desktop System product line?
I just ran across a press release announcing that Sun Java Desktop System Product Family is being retired. However, I didn't see anything mentioned about it being replaced by anything. I'm just curious - is the desktop just going to be treated as a part of OpenSolaris, so no name is necessary? Or is there a different product that has been announced. Just curious. I've lived through OpenWindows, CDE, GNOME and Sun Java Desktop and just wondered what the current thinking was. On Tue, 27 May 2008, Larry W.
