Java Sun's starting to phase out mobile Java that's been the standard on cellphones and other small devices in favor of their standard edition, which are made for PCs everywhere. Sun VP James Gosling's reasoning for shifting everyone over to Java Standard Edition is because 'cellphones and TV set-top boxes are growing up', meaning they're getting enough processing power to handle all the demands of full-featured Java.

Why different version afterall

a mobile edition I can understand

But I always wonder why they have different version if not to complicated life for no good reason. Why a enterprise and standard? Ahh, web libraries and a web server .. come on!

where is the .net entreprise edition, C standard and enterprise version. Did you run a python standard or enterprise interpreter.

Next Linux distro will sell a enterprise edition, where gcc used the --enterprise-code-quality-compilation - it will be better!
