Bug reports that are submitted to bugs.sun.com are initially treated as
"incidents" where they are filtered before moving to an appropriate
product in the (Oracle internal) bug database. The reason for this is
that there are hundreds of bug reports submitted each week, many of
which are submitted by end-users that neglect to include anything
useful. For some areas (it's on a per-category basis I think) then these
incidents go immediately into the bug database and so should be visible
on bugs.sun.com. I'm not sure about the Swing category (which this one
seems to have been submitted against), they may not be visible on
bugs.sun.com until they make it to their final destination. In any case,
this one looks to be have closed by the initial triage because it's not
a supported platform.
As regards this issue then I would suggest starting a new thread on
awt-dev to stoke up ideas for how sun.awt.OSInfo could be refactored to
better accommodate other platforms.
