Well I don't read that into it.
I see it as being just yet another plugin for IE that you download if you
need it. I also see it as M$ not wanting to take support calls for someone
else's bad coding problems.
There's a lot of major commercial software out there that uses Java (not
just PC stuff) and it's not going to go away overnight. M$'s fork of Java
just should not have been around; it fragments things.
