"Worth the upgrade..."

November 30, 2005  |  By silver_wind

 |  Version: Java 2 Runtime Environment Standard Edition 1.4.2

Pros

This version seems to run faster then the other versions released by Sun Microsystems, also if you plan to use any Java oriented content (which is 75% of webpages/games/tools/programs etc.) then you need this program or a similair program. Why choose another program? This ones free.

Cons

This program has a few minor flaws...such as it is a large download for those of you with dail-up....it has problems running on slower computers for those of you who have had a computer freeze or lock up on them. This is a great program to have... and remember that the best things in life are free... Silver Wind

"Excellent plug in from Sun"

March 24, 2005  |  By jproggr5150

 |  Version: Java 2 Runtime Environment Standard Edition 1.4.2

Pros

If you surf sites that use java this is the JRE you need. I feel compelled to reply to some of the negative reviews left here. hitted off has obviously been using programs that are infected with viri. Sun's proggies are clean ;) Dogedly Slow? Java is an interpreted language. Once the JRE is loaded, execution times rival those of C especially for network apps coded in JAVA. Installed on PC but can't run it?

It's not a stand-alone program, it's a RUNTIME ENVIRONMENT. Try surfing a free java applet site. Can you view the applets? If not, open up your browser's option panel and ENABLE JAVA. Sun is the defacto standard for JAVA development, and their products are above par.

Cons

1.5 is better.

"Absolute junk"

January 26, 2005  |  By Mel7

 |  Version: Java 2 Runtime Environment Standard Edition 1.4.2

Summary

Resource hog, unstable. Doggedly slow. Sun needs to hire some people above the Junior High level for beta testing.
