At the core of these discussions is that Microsoft wanted to make it 
easier to control ActiveX components from within Java, and Sun wanted 
keep Java OS-neutral.  When I evaluated Sun (JNI) and MS's (JDirect) 
proposals, I thought MS has a better one.  And I think there's a 
cause-effect relationship between Sun's stance of keeping OS-neutral and 
Java losing the desktop.
