"Microsoft Java" could mean two things: the Microsoft JVM which was discontinued long ago after Sun successfully sued Microsoft, or it could be Visual J++ the programming language Microsoft supplied for that JVM. Neither are Java, though both resemble Java.

Might be MS's implementation of JVM.

This page may be a starting point. The MS JVM never progressed past Java 1.1, omitted RMI, and added some proprietary extensions.

I thought "Microsoft's Java" was C#.

However, I felt that MS has twisted their IE somehow, to make some of the Java applets or application load faster with MS JVM, I mean some, might be developed using older version of Java, so far only limited to some site that I always visit.

I only want to install Sun JVM and JRE, I don't want to install MS JVM (though I have installed it a few months back due to incompatibility between IE and some websites), because you'll find it almost impossible to remove MS JVM from your machine, and by uninstalling using the tools provided by MS or third party will mess up your system, according to some IT techies. -.-" this doesn't sound good, does it?

The internet can become a pleasant experience once you stop using IE.

There are just too much of site developed for MS IE that doesnt really work well on other browser, which I don't really like, btw, I do used Firefox

It's a nice browser with a lot of plugins, I shall call it highly personalizable browser.Hehe...

I work on Linux platform, and there is no MS JVM available for me
(it is not platform independent).
