I suspect that it may have to do with the fact that the 'java' command uses Java conventions; and in Java '/' is recognised as a file (or, more correctly, a directory or path) separator in the right context. For example, the java.io.File class accepts '/' as a path separator regardless of what system the program is running on.
My question is: when will Microsoft get around to accepting what pretty much the rest of the computer world already uses?
Answer: probably never; and I'm certainly not going to hold my breath waiting.
Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
