A few screenshots taken with Sun Java Desktop running under Solaris 10 on a SunBlade 2000 workstation, which also works great as a heated footstool when placed under your desk.

A general view of the desktop with a few shortcuts to applications I frequently use and a nice backdrop with car, which on my salary I can only hope to steal.

Here we have JEdit with some code, Firefox with a Yahoo page open, NetBackup XBP file restore interface, and a terminal windows with translucent background.

    I am a freshman in high school. I currently do web design (i.e. HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Flash, etc.). I have been introduced to Visual Basic, and Java. I want to skip ahead for now and learn about creating applications (apps) for mobile phones. Where do I start? If you could please refer me to online tutorials.
