Sun's vision of computing is a promising one because it will allow a great variety of clients to participate on networks without the prior installation of special protocol stacks and LAN-specific software drivers on each client machine, ... Instead, the software drivers can be delivered via Java technology, on a just-in-time basis, as needed. Interoperability will be enhanced, and that interoperability will be good for end users both in the office and at home.
