End Draws Near for Watson; Vaporware Java Port From Sun Lost in Vapor

Dan Wood:

I am sad to say that it looks like Sun doesn’t seem to be focussing on getting the port of Watson released any time soon.

Of course, this wasn’t the plan. The intention when Sun acquired the Watson technology was to have a port released by this time. But as all of us are familiar with how public companies behave when pressure is put upon them by Wall Street for profitability; it seems that the release of the Watson port is not on Sun’s critical path right now.

I’m saddened by this for many reasons. First of all, I hate to see the end of Watson’s support period come in a very short while.
