Vol 102, Issue 2: August 7th, 2006 — August 13th, 2006

If you've been wondering what Scott McNealy has been up to lately, see article [16831] to read about his continuing push to eliminate the digital divide by including open source applications in schools. Before the kids head back to school, they might want you to take them to see the film "Barnyard"; since its computer graphics were made with Sun technologies [16830], it could be considered work-related fun.

In our Education section this week, we feature StarOffice software training resources [16834], especially good for schools that recently implemented the software. Solaris Service Plans are also explained [16773].

A new migration guide is available from Sun for developers who are migrating JBuilder to NetBeans [16827]. The recently announced Sun Blade 8000 comes with free services as part of a new promotion [16839], and a download is available for the blade [16815].
