According to ZDnet?s Java News service, ?Sun is quietly developing a new
version of its software specifically for Windows XP that it hopes to
place on new PCs and make available for download?.

This claim is contained in a long round-up of news about Microsoft?s
decision not to include a Java Virtual Machine in Windows XP by default.
The story reports: ?In full-page ads in The New York Times, San Jose
Mercury News and The Wall Street Journal on Thursday, Sun called on
consumers ?to demand that Microsoft include the Java platform in their
XP operating system?. Sun also said consumers should demand ?PC vendors
like Dell, Compaq, Gateway, IBM and HP (Hewlett-Packard) include the
Java platform in their applications?."
