You are no doubt pleased with how it is running on your new MacBook?

I keep finding those tiny but cool little integration things. I selected a date in the text of an email about an event because I was going to put it onto my calendar. A little popup trigger arrow appeared and when I checked it out, one of the options was "Add this to your calendar". And it parsed the date and put the entry into my calendar, opened for editing. It was beautiful, man!

Yeah, that's one of the things that Apple is really really good at. And all without cluttering the UI.

You can get Java 6 as a preview release for newish "64-bit capable" Intel Macs (Core 2 Duo or Xeon based). It's working on my Macbook Pro just fine.
