[MD1] Microsoft's Java Compliance
We are forwarding this for you to see. This is not specifically an endorsement of the letter below nor of Microsoft's practices/policies -- it is for your information and for you to make up your own mind. If we are sent an equivalent letter to support Microsoft, we will distribute that as well. MacDev-1 Team ------------------- From: David Schargel, davids@aportis.com Dear friends, I am writing you this message to ask for action. A few short days ago, Microsoft released the final Win95/NT version of the Internet Explorer 4.0 web browser. This browser, as expected, does not contain an implementation of Java that is fully-compliant with the Java core platform. It may have a compatible JVM, but it does not contain the full class libraries of the JDK 1.1 implementations of Java. The omissions seem to be intentional. Let's be clear, IMHO Microsoft is deliberately trying to destroy the chance for Java to fulfill its "write once, run anywhere" promise. Java portability is the single...

From: MWRon@metrowerks.com (MW Ron) Subject: [ANN] Open CW C++ v2 Beta Test Version Warriors, Metrowerks had to make some hard decisions on the C++ compilers whether to add some C++ improvements this summer or to put all of our efforts into a new version of our C++ compilers.
