Sun Launches ‘Plan B”. Sun is going to work harder to get PC OEMs and endusers to install their JVM. Duh. This should have been their plan A all along. Obviously PC OEMs are willing to ship a lot of software — look at all the shovelware that comes on a new PC. The fact that they haven’t been willing to ship the JVM is really telling — it is saying that a Java VM is more useless than every other piece of cruddy software that they ship — this is truly stunning given the quality of some of the shovelware. Sun should listen to OEMs and build a few Java apps that actually solve some interesting OEM problems, and then every OEM would take the apps and the VM.
