Java isn't included in Win XP. Is it worth downloading and installing? Is there a good reason why Microsoft chose not to include it, for example, does it cause problems or security issues?
sometimes you'll need it, so you might as well get it, they just didn't include it ever since Sun and them had a slap fight with eachother

don't ya remember sun pimped java...MS released it's own java, sun whined Ms didn't care finally MS said ta hell with it and just didn't include any java to be bastids! heheh
