Java2 in Navigator 5?

Tuesday June 15th, 1999

According to Alan Baratz of Sun, Java2 will be an integrated part of Navigator 5. I assume "integrated" means that it will utilize OJI, which should allow for their JVM to be replaced by another company's if desired.

Thanks to Bill Lynch for the news.

People have been speculating that this is due to a rift between MS and Intel that has been festering for some time. Don't look at me - I didn't say it originally. I believe it was either reported at The Register: <http://www.theregister.co.uk/> or at Slashdot: <http://www.slashdot.org/> but that was a little while back, so you may not find the story there. Still, it is somewhat interesting - coupled with the fact that MS is eyeing the new Elbrus E2K processor, for reasons unknown to me...

And now I've helped this whole forum get incredibly off-topic... ^_^
