I have to keep M$ VM because some apps at work use thier flavor of java. Such a pain in the ass. I am so glad Sun won the lawsuit. Right now to use "Netlearn" a CBT(Computer based Training) system at work I have to dissable Sun Java systems in the IE>Tools>Internet Options>Advanced section in the browser. Just to load the pages. This of course requires a browser re-start. So I close all browsers then login again to use it.

Now NCON a network inventory tool uses only Sun Java. Dissable the Microsoft Java VM and the JIT loggin(I think that is right), to get that to work. Re-start the browser..

There are several like this. So now that M$ is no longer supporting it what will we do?


/me throws hands in the air screaming stupid board room ass holes. Go with Microsoft, yea they are safe. IDIOTS!!!!!
