confirm this?  So much for Microsoft "quaking."  

Microsoft licensed the right to "use" JAVA code in their Microsoft  
Browser products. Everybody else can license the use of JAVA, too. 

In other Microsoft words, "If you can't beat them, buy them, and if  
you can't buy them, I guess we will have to license it."
