Be sure to read the forum topic on how to make a request the right way before making a request! This topic includes examples on what not to do. If you have not yet, reading this topic is *NOT* optional.

Requests that sound like demands, ultimatums or requests for software just because it exists on other sites will be locked and ignored by the staff. Do not pester people offering software for an immediate download or for us to expedite our upload queue to get new software.

Hi, I have heard of Sun Microsystems Java OS but never used it. I would like to try it out and I think a few other people would too! If anyone has it could they please upload it or whatever you do! (I'm a new member)

One of the issues with Java is that it is a pretty slow. From what I've learned from past experience, since Java is not a binary language, it has to be compiled every time a program is run using a "Virtual Machine". Sun did make an OS in Java but it was very short lived due to many issues including the speed of the OS. However, I had an old cellphone back in the early 2000's which used Java. However Java was only used in this case for applications.

there was another
Java "3D Looking Glass"

you can even call it a first incarnation of android, but in full 3D
it was using Linux kernel, and Java as shell

was live cd only, its pretty neat with 3D functionality and parallax effects
at least for that time (2003)
