Sun vs MS Java

As most have done I installed Sun's Java, when XP decided not to. Since SP1 now includes MS's is there a good reason to not stay with Sun?

Good grief Charlie Brown
I downloaded sun's yesterday because I'm using Mozilla now. After it installed & I go to a page that needs it my clock (not windows) now flickers in time with the page. :eek: Thankfully I don't go there very often.
I have found the MS JVM to be faster than the Sun JVM (ironically)

I have both installed, since I use the Sun one for Mozilla, my primary browser.


I may actually be insane.
Microsofts own java will run more efficiently because it will be optimised more towards windows, where-as sun's java package will run just that bit slower.
I find they both do the job in the end tho, and thats all that really matters :D
