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.

I do corporate desktop support for a company that loads
a custom install of XP and that also relies heavily on Java with IE for their Intranet apps.
Lately, we've been seeing a lot of problems regarding the JVM loading that cannot be fixed by removal / reinstallation.
When IE is messed, we can fall back to Firefox until the user can turn in their laptop to onsite support but I haven't found any alternative JVMs that include browser plugins.
Do anyone know of any?
