From the Slashdot file: News: Microsoft pulls back on Java support
Very interesting....

I'm not that surprised. Really, if you are seriously interested in running Java, you want to download one of the more recent runtimes from Sun, not use the one that Microsoft includes. It's a more up-to-date and better version of Java.

And based on what I've seen, C# is so obviously influenced by Java, and the whole .NET technology is strongly rooted in Microsoft's experiences were with Java, it's not surprising at all. Not at all.

I've described -- and probably stole at some point, and forgotten the attribution -- Java as being C++ - C. That's of coursenot really accurate since Java has the garbage collection built into the language, which C++ doesn't naturally have . And C# has the garbage collection, so it's probably better described as Java + C. But that's still a greatly simplistic outlook on it.
