Quote of the Day
Apple has made the noises of being the 'Java Platform', but has yet to deliver. But as Steve stated,in their defense, they're trying.
 
That many applications can't be delivered on the Mac OS, is no failing on the developers part. I have been delivering applications to thousands of users ( Win, Linux, Solaris, Mac), but it's been a battle to maintain the Apple implementation. The applications always work 100% uniformly across Win, Linux, and Solaris in JRE 1.3.1 (same bugs and functionality), but 80% of the problems are always in the Mac implimentation.
 
Since the Mac Java delivery has ALWAYS been 8 months to a year behind the rest of the Java community, our deliveries have gone from 60% Mac to 12% Mac. The 12% have been retained through significant professional risk and detriment. Most converts to the Linux/Win side have been a result of 'enough is a enough' and the desire to stop wasting money and resources.
