Java powered Netbooks

This is interesting - Oracle's Ellison considers netbook market foray.

Also interesting to hear that JavaFx will get more support. Strange.. considering the fact that most people thought JavaFx/Desktop Java would die after the Oracle acquisition. More hints here with Larry Ellison and Scott McNealy on stage at the JavaOne 2009 inauguration (at 1:38:11). Not just that but he was also eyeing the Google Android Netbook market. Seems natural enough to mere mortals like us now that the visionaries have laid out a plan of attack on the pseudo-JVM that is Android.

As an aside - Acer to sell Android netbook PCs in Q3.
