Subject Re: Platforms for Java 2...

The irony of this is that several 'Show Case' Java projects that they've
highlighted (one I'm responsible for for Saab AB) run on NetBSD and FreeBSD

The NetBSD JDK porter has consistently reported that Sun REFUSES to permit
the same licensencing they've conceded to the Linux camp to us *BSD users.

Damn it, I'm going back to tcl/tk :)

For my part I have 8 servers which will soon REQUIRE the use of the JDK 1.2.
Which means we'll either have to run blackdown's port in emulation or do it
our selves. Ouch. Yikes, strike that.
