I'm sure some of you have already heard of the recent release of WindowsXP's SP1a patch, perhaps it has also come to your attention that we never posted about this release.

Well, it has been confirmed to us that the only difference between SP1a and SP1 is the absence of MS JVM (Java Virtual Machine) in the latter, which they had to remove due to a recent judge's decision, after their (never ending) legal "wranglings" with Sun Microsystems. According to the court papers, MS will have to bundle Sun Java APIs with all their Windows 32/64-bit OSes to come (thanks George).
