In the keynote this morning, Sun announced they will offer a Sun Ultra 20 Workstation for only $29.95 / month with all Java development suites and support included.
Look under "Current Promotions" here:
Sun Ultra 20
In the keynote at JavaOne this morning, Sun announced they will offer a Sun Ultra 20 Workstation for only $29.95 / month (3 year agreement) with a 90 day return if you don't like it. At the end of the 3 years, you keep the machine.
The offer includes Solaris 10, updates, and the Java develoment tools and support.
In a recent blog entry I was pondering installing Solaris on a home machine... now I'm thinking about a new Ultra 20!
UPDATE: Sun tells me if you want a higher priced system, this offer will credit you the $895, and you pay the difference.
Also, if you instead want to purchase the system outright, you get double the memory by entering the promotion code "doubleyourmemory" in the coupon field. This offer expires July 8, 2005.
