Now listening to the Java SE and EE keynote. Graham is revisting the core features of Java 6. Which includes some GUI clean-up for windows and updates for Windows Vista.

The GUI looks nice and 10 years on the gray/grey rectangle is gone.

But as a Java Linux user I want a 64bit plugin, the number 4 feature on the web site. I doubt whether one will be around for beta2 in June for final release in October.

Next up is Bill Shannon with Java EE 5 which was approved a couple of weeks back
