Good question, Brad.  I only quoted the brochure, especially since I have no
working knowledge of Java (is it a language? a platform? ???  I wasn't even
sure that Linux "supported" Java).  Since I'm using Win95 and they blessed
that OS explicitly, I haven't bothered asking them about it.  Jon or his
client will have to check that part out.

"... or any OS installed with a compliant Java VM"

What does this mean?  Are there different versions of JVMs on different
OS's?  If M$ has their own, does this mean it only works on M$?  Or is it a
"vague" way to say "It may work, it may not.  Try it out."?
