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outdated pretty quickly the cost savings of not supporting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

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...
