From: bede For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: ms - java well I dont really blame Ms for wanting to drop something from windows the most obvious resean being it cuts down on a whole other level of complications and support for there programs that they build. in the enviroment that they live in where software gets outdated pretty quickly the cost savings of not supporting additional things can be huge. granted I dont nessacerally agree with ms I do belive it is up to the users to justify the inclusion of java support in ms products, how ever i am critical of dropping it in web browser support as java is at least supported and working in the majority of browsers in use now and at least it runs out of a sand box in the browser so it offers more protection than vbsript.... personally Im going to be very annoyed because java is at least working on many diffrent types of machinces and at least offered some uniformtiy when coding programs to run in diffrent enviroments From: Robbie Steele For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Microsoft dropping Java Holy brown stuff batman! It would seem as if Microsoft doesn't want to support the web again (even with .Net) by dropping Java, a cornerstone system. Its like Tip-Top (NZ ice cream company) dropping Hockey Pockey ice cream... Surly the source was wrong...Now Have Your Say
