    Phoronix: Sun Provides 64-bit Java Plug-In For Linux

    After years of complaints by its users, last month Adobe released 64-bit Flash for Linux. Now this month Sun Microsystems has come to the table with a Java plug-in that is compatible with 64-bit web browsers...

    Are we talking about openjdk or the non-free java here? If it's the closed java, why don't they support the openjdk, that it can fully replace the non free java? I really like that they help with openjdk, but there should be a 100% free java that works 100% like the closed java. It works almost perfect, but there are in some applications minor ugly-looking things.
    For me openjdk is more important than the closed java.

      It's a great news for me. I've just recently switched to 64bits, mostly thanks to the 64b flashplugin and now java-plugin in coming. Awesome ^^;

        Man, seems like Sun doesn't like its own OS. First JavaFX (which is only for Windows... wtf?), now normal Java?

          About time! I'll give it a try as soon as a .deb for ubuntu is available.

          Both gcj and openjdk failed to work properly in various java applets.

              ekhem 64 bit java was working on any browser that doesn't need a plugin for it and can access java directly... For example konqueror had it for years... So it was mainly Firefox problem. I could as well blame FF for not supporting it the way konqueror does.

                blame firefox? lol

                no, it's sun's duty to release a 64bit of their software.
