Microsoft to Discontinue Java Support
I have been looking through the forum for a discussion on MS's decision to drop the JVM from Windows XP. If I've missed it, please point me to it. Otherwise I have a couple of questions and announcements.
There is a petition at http://www.PetitionOnline.com/mjava/
There is an E-Week article at http://www.zdnet.com/eweek/stories/g...795569,00.html
From this article I gather that the Java Virtual Machine will be dropped from XP. Additionally, testing has shown that the MSIE does not recognize the JVM after and upgrade from Win9x, ME, NT, & 2000 to XP.
Sign the petition listed above. I don't know that it will help but we can get a sense of the concern regarding the problem.
I am once again considering placing popupís on web sites that I design (with client permission) that warn of the XP/MSIE 6 problems. If there is enough support among web designers, I think this could force MS to change their minds.
