IDC projects that Linux will run on 25 million desktops by the year 2007. The driving force of this expansion will be applications and products that are enabled to run on the Linux operating system. Eclipse, an open source platform for development tools, makes it easier to deliver applications and solutions on Linux, and the newly released Eclipse developement package
, available at no charge, makes it even easier. It consists of the latest open source Eclipse SDK (v3.0) from Eclipse.org, plus the latest IBM Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for Linux. With the addition of the IBM JRE to the package, developers can now develop, test, and deploy their Java applications with IBM's runtime environment.
