"Relationship Will Accelerate the Worldwide Adoption of the Next-Generation User Experience, the Network User Environment."

"Eazel Inc., the developer of software and services to make computers easier to use, today announced that Sun Microsystems (Nasdaq:SUNW) will distribute Eazel's Nautilus software on the upcoming GNOME 2.0 desktop user environment for the Solaris(TM) operating environment. The combination of GNOME and Nautilus will provide Linux and Solaris users with the same, easy-to-use user environment across both platforms. In addition, Eazel and Sun will work together to improve the accessibility, internationalization and documentation of Nautilus."

"The relationship between Sun and Eazel will accelerate the adoption of the Eazel Network User Environment (NUE), a new class of user environment that takes full advantage of the Internet. Unlike previous environments that were designed for standalone desktops and applications, the NUE makes local and remote content, community, commerce, and Internet services a fundamental part of the user experience. Additionally, the NUE promises to create a new standard for ease of use by freeing users from complex and tedious system administration tasks such as system back-ups and software upgrades."
