On the eve of Sun's release of Java-2 at the Java Internet Business Expo, Microsoft released, to great press fanfare, a new Java Virtual Machine for Windows, one supposedly Sun compliant in keeping with the Judges orders. According to Microsoft this new JVM ran at least 30% faster on Windows NT than Sun's newest JVM.

Sun reviewed the claims, and declared Microsoft had spoofed the benchmarks. Somehow, mysteriously, all the benchmark data suddenly vanished from the copies of the press releases posted on Microsoft's Web site. When is somebody going to tell these guys - people have started checking facts? OK, OK, so most of the computer press swallowed it hook line and sinker yet again. When is somebody going to tell those guys to start checking facts?

Microsoft now claims the data was never there, and challenges the press to duplicate the benchmark tests. Not easy when you can't find out what they were.
