    MS pulls Java early? (all)

    Several boards are reporting that Java Virtual Machine is no longer availible for download from the Microsoft site. As best we can tell, it is related to the Sun lawsuit. Here is some related info:

    Where these comments are made:

    "Sun argued that Microsoft didn't have the right to distribute the software online.

    Microsoft disagrees, but decided to remove the Java download so it wouldn't be an issue, despite the inconvenience it may cause customers..."

    'Bout the best (only?) place you can now get an update for the JVM is here - which is, natch, the Sun site.
    To find out if you have the latest ( 5.00.3805) type WJView on the Start/Run command line.
