After this end-of-life date, Karelia will not be able to fully support and maintain Watson. (Between now and then, Watson will continue to be fully supported.)” Sun is going to use Watson to show off the Java language. I didn’t know it was written in Java, or are they porting it? Anyway, it looks like we are going to get to see Linux and Windows versions.
