Sun gives a flying food about AMD64

During my attempts to get Java support into my Iceweasel browser on my amd64 desktop, Sam Morris pointed me to this bug log. In it, you will find more than two years worth of requests and seconds by users desperately waiting for the 64-bit Java browser plugin without a single comment by Sun.

Amazing.

Even if it means using JRE 1.4, as opposed to 1.5 or even Java6, I am switching to Blackdown, who even provide an APT-gettable archive of their Java packages.

At least now Java works from within my Iceweasel browser on amd64.

Thanks, Sun. Suckers.
