Food for thought: 64-bit support sooner than later
I just realized that Flash isn't supported on Internet Explorer 64-bit. This could potentially be a big "in" for Java on the desktop if we were there months if not years before Flash. The real question is what the market penetration is of 64-bit operating systems and how much effort would be involved in porting the entire JDK (including Webstart) to 64-bit.
Anyone have any information on this?
