I still don't get it. What does intel has to do on a Java IDE, or for that matter any IDE.
They still provide some tools - so they are interested in the platform for those tools.

Good question. From a selling point of view they would better be pushing NetBeans :-)

No no, just like that.
SUN's team (JTC) is seems to be more powerful.
JTC is little more than a working group for the JCP, since the body doesn't create standards and doesn't provide an IDE.
IBM stand behind all what is best in Java, Jakarta, Apache, Eclipse, has
the best Java Compiler and the best VM.
Without IBM Linux would also not have been more than the software equivalent of a bicycle.
Also Suns J2EE application server (I have forgotten the name of the week) is a joke.
