I was wondering that myself. You would think it would be built in.
Java has been around long enough.

Yeah, there was a big thing about this... MS didn't include Java because they want to kill Java and replace it with its .NET crap.

So they didn't include Java support...

This must be more recent because the reason M$ didn't include any sort of Java runtime in the original XP release was because Sun was going to sue them if they did. Doesn't matter too much to me because I use Sun's Java anyway.
