MS set to drop support for Java. Isn't it great that they are so committed to standards? I wonder if they'll change Jscript or heck, why not just drop ECMA all together? ugh.

jeez. Are they going to resurrect J++ too? I love this quote:
The move is likely to spark a series of lawsuits from developers as Microsoft attempts to stem the flow of developers migrating to the Java platform, said Mark Driver, a research director at Gartner
What are you doing Microsoft?

Yeah, this is certainly in the "What were you thinking?" file. Hmmm...let's see, you've just been slammed by the DOJ for monopoly power and for damaging the consumer. You've just released a non-compliant browser and now you announce intentionaly non-compliance with the Java standard. Bearing in mind all the lawsuits, let me ask one question: what were you thinking?
