Microsoft can wait a bit longer to include Java in its Windows OS and Internet Explorer browser. The company was originally ordered to begin including Sun Microsystems Inc.'s latest Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) with Windows by the end of April. However, in yet another twist in Sun's seemingly endless antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals of Richmond,
Virginia has granted Microsoft a stay of the preliminary injunction. Regardless, Microsoft recently announced plans to make Java available for download as a Windows update, as well ship Windows XP
service packs featuring a newer version of Java later this year.
