Windows XP launch
Today Microsoft launched Windows XP, as reported on CNN. For a European perspective on this, see The Register. Whilst Windows XP does not necessarily come with Java preinstalled, major OEMs that we have spoken to intend to ship Java as standard. If you happen to have a version without Java preinstalled then Microsoft have kindly provided an automatic upgrade when you first visit any Java enabled site, as follows: one, two, three.
