    Cool "Microsoft ordered to carry Java"

    A US judge has ordered software giant Microsoft to include Sun Microsystem's Java programming language in its widely-used Windows operating system.

    The order is to remain in force pending the final outcome of a lawsuit brought by Sun Microsystems against Microsoft.

    Sun claims that the software giant tried to marginalise Java by making a recent version of Windows, used on 90% of the world's personal computers, incompatible with the programming language.
    Imagine my relief when I read this article - hopefully it means the next 2 years of my Uni course of learning Java won't be in vain.

    Full article here - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/2602753.stm

    Also in the article it mentions of 3 other competitors bringing cases against M$. Does anyone know who the others are?
    I\'m drunk, and right now I\'m so in love with you.

    Agreed. Yay for leaving Java in the hands of the originator. (More or less.)
