Re: Smart Card and Java



its bad when you've got to explain Jokes particularly jokes on the jokester

In the beginning Java was penetrateable and so slow. Sun claimed to fix the
penetration feature but its still slow

In the beginning ActiveX was supposed to be fast -- it turns out that its
also penetrateable and not so fast but fater than Java

The Joke originally was on Active X for the fact it had been shown how it
could be penetrated 

But it really was on Java for it being slow (and maybe penetrateable)

If the smart card used Inferno ins and outs would be quick and easy the only
problem would be the documentation and lack of a driver for the lock
