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 The JVM it was shipping was horridly out-of-date anyway and not useful for serious Java application developers.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.
