Re: Big Brother is Real
I'm not sure I get your drift. I do mostly Java myself, but on every
system except MacOS one must install the Java SDK or runtime
separately. I doubt Sun likes that state of affairs and as a Java
developer, neither do I, but it's how things are right now.
Microsoft dispensed with Java because it's in a legal and market battle
with Sun. The JVM it was shipping was horridly out-of-date anyway and
not useful for serious Java application developers.
Anyway, in this thread we're talking about licensing terms and privacy,
not OS quality.

If XP is such a good OS why did they strip out the JVM? Some of us
prefer writing component based Java over heavy and slow monolithic
Visual Basic apps. I would purchase XP except I want to Manage my
registry instead of Microsoft.
