I was updating one of my Vista machine’s installed JRE a couple of days ago, and I noticed something interesting. I’m sure this has been old news for a while, but it was the first time I had noticed it. While running the installer from Sun Microsystems, I got what seems these days like the obligatory “toolbar” up-sell. This time though, even though this is software from Sun, the up-sell was for the MSN/Live toolbar. I thought this was an interesting combo, and took a quick screenshot of the installer (below). Of course the next screen was an ad for Sun’s Open Office as a “good enough” alternative to Microsoft Office, so maybe the dogs and cats aren’t quite living together yet, but close.
