MS ordered to distribute Java

Woha! A federal judge on Monday ordered Microsoft to distribute the rival Java programming language in its Windows operating system. The injunction will remain in effect while the trial continues. Whether you agree with the measure or not, it's undeniable that this has the potential to open up (at least for a while) the Windows platform for Java applications, so that they won't require downloading the JVM, and so maybe level the playing field a bit for the next few months.
