What you said actually supports my arguments: 1) You said: "Third-party implementations also create another layer of complexity for bugs to spring out of, since they usually differ slightly from the original." Correct me if I am wrong, but JVM's for different platforms are implemented by different vendors. 2) You said: "If MS were to turn control of ActiveX over to a standards body, and it was accepted, it might be worth another look..." Sun hasn't done this with Java, but you support it. Why? With COM, you at least have control over the binary of the COM component. But you have no control over how JVM is implemented.
