With yet another update from Comdex, Pater: Even though not listed in the directory Sun is here, albeit on PC. It's kinda odd to see PCs running Solaris and OpenWindows in the middle of a primarily Win32 convention. The Linux pavillion was also quite crowded, featuring S.u.S.E., Red Hat, and Caldera. Linux Journal is there as well. Most of the atttendees here have no idea that another OS exists besides Win 95/NT.
My personal favorite product is InstantBasic for Java by Halcyon Software. This program, touted by Sun, transforms Visual Basic code into Java, making it platform independent!
