I sort of predicted this a few months ago -- when I said the only problem
with the Java OS was that  it didn't

Sun has surrendered !!! -- Unlike Nixon there really was no secret plan for
a robust network to work with Java now they've admitted it

Lucent on the other hand now has access to 10,000 + developers for the
Inferno environment

Despite the fact that the 10,000 + companies developing for Java have total
sales of order of $1 billion and the 10 companies that Lucent sells to have
total sales of $100 billion the press declared Java a success

So lets celebrate the porting of Java apps to Inferno and all join in a rousing
Jeer for Active X and Windows CE

MicroSoft is the big loser in this one

Hip Hip Hooray etc

just a few lose bits after having been burried up to my whatever in the
April fools day blizzard
