If anyone actually keeps up with their computer news, they would know that
all the major companies (encompassing IBM, Microsoft, Apple and/or Macintosh,
and all the other big names) have a deal with Sun where JavaChips will be
installed in all new releases starting at a future date. (I can't remember
what.) Now, even though companies are bound to make mistakes, I don't think
that the biggest names in computing are going to invest millions in a
"passing fad". Then again, I could be wrong, but I sincerely doubt that,
given the evidence on my side. :)

DOES anyone here keep up with computer news? I mean, I know you guys are
busy and all, but lemme know if you like want me to tell you or 
anything. I realize most of you use computers every day, but stil..
its just an offer.
