    Default apple plug-in

    where to ask this issue

    Dear Madam/ Sir

    I'd like very much to know what is going on with the java plug-in for
    (older) Mac computers. It seems that my applet only works on the newer Intel
    Mac book. It seems that all the rest of the applet series refuse to show the
    applet. This fact is very worrying to me and I would like to know (from Sun
    and or from Apple) what is going on. It seems that the right plug-in, the
    one that makes my applet to work, simply does not exist (the applet works
    fine on pc). This situation is not good for either Sun or Apple (I do not
    know who is to blame), so please tell me what is going on.

    For me,

    I think Apple told Sun not to support the older mac versions anymore in their critical JRE updates, so that those java developers will forcely buy a new mac book. ( Apple's favor )....

    Who cares nobody uses Apple because they suck. Why worry about a program that only 2% of the population at max can use.

    Once again your code will only affect if every person that owned a mac was a Java developer, and they all used old apples than it would only help 2% of the population, no matter how you break it down.

    @Zosden

    Actually Mac computers are used by more than 2% of the market and Macs are very nice machines, expensive though :). Read this:

    Ok 14 percent of people who most of those people have new macs hence why mac sales have gone up. Will is worried about older machines. My point still stands

    Default apples, treads and applets

    After finishing my photo applet (with the help of some of the forum members) and starting my web page (WILLEM DRAGSTRA WEB SITE) I took a break! But soon I will be ‘harassing’ our applet forum again because I am studying treads (interesting subject) and planning to write an mp3 player applet based on multitasking.
    I do not think that apple sucks. I believe they are wonder full machines (the simple presents of a pc already makes me feel nervous). But it might by true that the good sale results will turn that small and inventive company into an arrogant one?
    (I found out that the applet is actual not running on ox 10.3 and less)
