"Sun has been supporting the work of Blackdown to get the newest version of Java--Java 2, formerly known as JDK 1.2--working on Linux. A spokesperson for Sun said Blackdown's effort could be done in a week or two and that Java 2 under Linux will be shown this week at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Jose, California."
