And if you needed a JVM, the minute you brought a webpage with java you would be prompted to download it from Sun, you know just like Flash, Acrobat, and every other third party extension out there. Unfortunately Sun somehow got a judge to buy off on the fact that they think they are more important than any other third party extension producer.
What part of "Microsoft had a contract with Sun to distribute a compliant JRE with Windows" do you not understand?

Oh no, all those evil judiciary people interfering with a free market of fraud and violated contracts! They are obviously bought and paid for.
