Nothing But Net
We spoke of Java here before and its uses for successful electronic commerce applications. As both Microsoft and Netscape continued to one-up each other, no compatible standard for Java Virtual Machines was reached. Roughly 12,000 "Java zealots" were to invade San Francisco on March 24 for the JavaOne trade show. Maybe something will come out of that.
Microsoft and Netscape have taken their battle to the extreme, yet continue to put out products that just don't seem to set the world on fire. I thought competition is supposed to breed the best.
I welcome any comparisons to this situation, and as always welcome your feedback. E-mail me at email@example.com.
