I honestly have no idea what’s changed – do we have a JVM user in here? Don’t fail me guys and girls!

I love it. 🙂 2011-10-08 12:09 am n4cer The question posed at the end of the news post mentions JVM instead of JWM. 2011-10-08 5:36 am OSbunny Yeah it’s a typo. JVM is the java virtual machine. 2011-10-08 6:43 am Icaria JWM is great when running an ancient PC. Granted, I still prefer a *box.
