JavaFX Fail [Dec. 4th, 2008|11:19 pm]

I go to look at the JavaFX demos. I'm redirected by javafx.com to a URL that contains /mac-player.jsp. Write-once-run-anywhere, my ass. Sun's own URL is calling an end to that lie.

Then, after a long hang, my browser goes white and all the other windows and tabs hang and start spinning rainbow beachballs and I get a trust dialog:

After that Safari hung so hard I hand to force kill it a few times.

Good job.

I still don't know what JavaFX is.

This doesn't surprise me in the least.

I think there's an endemic problem somewhere in their distribution division, I've given up bothering with trying to download/obtain anything with /.*java.*/ in it after cursing vehemently about it in the past (http://rambleon.org/2007/09/04/and-this-is-what-you-changed-your-ticker-too/) on more than one occasion.

And to think this is their ticker symbol (http://comic.conversationswithplasticdinosaurs.com/2007/08/javaballs.html).
