I was talking about the project formerly known as "Azureus", the P2P
client, not Azure.
Btw: Are you aware of what Microsoft did with Java, back in the 1.x
days?. Does "embrace and extend" mean anything to you?. As such, I´d
take any involvement by Microsoft in any Java related project with a
high degree of suspicion. Microsoft has been trying to "derail" Java
for over a decade. Microsoft´s .Net and mono are two examples.

Rest aZsured ;-) that Microsoft won´t do anything that helpsJava,
quite the contrary....

The current legal fight between Oracle and Google is about Davlik,
Google´s VM and its use of Java. That has nothing to do with the
availability -or lack thereof- of a standards-compliant Java VM for
Google´s Chrome OS. In fact, I think the current scenario is a REASON
to bring OpenJDK to Chrome OS.
A Chrome OS without Java -if succesful- decreaces the chance of
success for Java as a software platform.
Just my $0.02
