I just read it... What are we going to do about it? Personally I'm
tired of sun java and I think I'm going to start weekly builds of java
1.5 for public download.... and don't get me started with Flash, I
can't even get that thing to install/working correctly, when it did
work it enjoyed crashing Firefox all the time... Has anyone tried some
type of petition to get a native version?

never mind, I just made one so go sign it!!!
