You must not have upgraded to panther or work with java... They even

Yea, and you (we :( ) will probably have to have upgraded to a G9 to 
run osx10.6 (or just hear iTunes)... And you will probably need a .mac 
account... And if you use java, maybe they will be up to:
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_07-99.1)
... if it installs correctly when you upgrade...

(he says, having to install java clean after religiously following the 
Software Updates, if interested see:
... hmmm... it just works on Windows...)

Anybody want to video chat?
