According to Jacqueline Emigh of LinuxPlanet, Sun is rolling out plans to make all its development tools available on Linux by the end of 2004, including environments for both Java and C/C++ developers.

Suns Java Studio Standard tools are already available for Linux. Jeff Anders, group marketing manager, said that Sun will also produce a Linux edition of Sun Studio, its kit for C/C++ developers, by the end of this year. Until now, Sun Studio has only been available for Solaris.
