Sun's new horizon

Sun releases new versions of its UltraSparc II and integrated UltraSparc IIi chips, and says it will port its Java Development Kit to Linux.

Sun Microsystems released new versions of its UltraSparc II and integrated UltraSparc IIi chips, and vendors are expected to follow with new Unix-based workstations. The new chips are the first steps in an ambitious roadmap designed to keep the company in the vanguard of 64-bit chip development. Separately, the company said it will port the latest version of its Java Developer's Kit to Linux, even while Sun and Hewlett-Packard battle over control of how time-critical commands are handled by devices running Java programs.
