Could you have expected any other response from our friends at Microsoft? In the
past two years I have never seen a more self serving attempt to ram DTV
standards down broadcasters throats much less Java standardization. If
broadcasting had any political representation at all, we'd all be working in
1080p tommorow. Instead we are catering to the lowest common denominator. The
weakest operating system of a PC. I'm sick.
