http://forums.opensuse.org – This is not a rant, and is kind of old news now. That said, I am still baffled by how long it took Sun to release a 64-bit Java plug in. I was just reading the bug id here: Bug ID: 4802695 Support 64-bit Java Plug-in and Java webstart on Windows/Linux on AMD64 This bug was open for 4 years!! It had over 800 votes. I remember when I started using a 64-bit browser in 2008, getting Java to work in it was a nightmare... all sorts of hacks. Anyone know why they left this so long..? /jlar (Distributions)
