JAVA DESKTOP SYSTEM SOLUTION

Minimize threats from viruses and worms. Windows desktops are frequent targets of viruses and worms creating serious productivity drains and requiring expensive response teams. The Java Desktop System is less susceptible to virus and worm attacks due in part to a superior security architecture and the use of Java technology that confines actions to a restricted sandbox.
Java Desktop System is part of the Solaris 10 Operating System which is available as a free download. You can't beat that price! Not only does this compare very favorably with Microsoft Windows XP/Home, it also includes the advanced StarOffice office productivity suite, comparable to Microsoft Office, for no additional charge.
