hello do you mean the microsoft CAN win the case or HAS winned the case? if bill would win,how do you think of the prospective of java,i think it wouldn't affect the java a lot,except applet,because it need the client side support,but i don't think it is necessary,i even never use applet from beginning because of its performance problem-too slow to download,and most function of applet can be implemented by scriptlet,what's your opinion?
