Sun Microsystems Inc is bundling Insignia Solutions Inc’s NTrigue Client for Solaris on its SparcStation and UltraSparc workstations so that users can run any Windows application with the double-click of an icon. As with the Java version, Sun has yet to be enticed to sell the NTrigue NT-based server that goes with it. Sun hopes the move will eliminate the need for power users to also have a personal computer on their desks. By the way, ClieNT Server News hears – unofficially – that Wabi, the Sun Windows-on-Unix scheme that was originally heralded as a surefire way to evade Microsoft Corp’s taxes, is now dead. Sun could never get it to run more than the top few Windows programs. Sun will continue to sell Insignia’s SoftWindows emulator, and now has SunPC Cards for its SparcStation 5s, which will slip into an Sbus slot for running Win95 and 3.1 – but not NT – applications.
