Oracle products: more pains in the asp. Why make thing difficult when you can make impossible? Unfortunately, they seem to be the only PC game town if you need to watch things like YouTube, or some other video based apps. I run Windows 7 Ultimate, have been using and running a variety of computers now since 1997! I'm still a Novice. Oracle is the company you love to hate. Java - a necessary evil. Don't be evil.
