Lighthouse Applications as Free Software
More Info at:
These applications are not adding to Sun Microsystems' bottom line as they are no longer available for sale anywhere. Additionally, they would provide a valuable starting point for development of similar productivity applications on Mac OS X and on other OpenStep compliant systems.
Releasing these applications as free software would increase competition, offer the end-user more choices, and would also increase Sun's visibility in these areas by expanding on it's list of open source/free software products (currently comprised only of the OpenOffice suite).
We hope that Sun Microsystems will see fit to grant this small request.
