Java 6 on Leopard. Well, almost

So, it looks like there's finally a developer preview of Java 6 for Mac OS X Leopard. Am I happy? Nope. Why? Here's why:

 CPU Architecture

64-bitMachines I haveMachines running Java 6

It only runs on Macs with 64-bit Intel CPU. Now, I have a 64-bit PowerPC Mac, and I have a 32-bit Intel Mac, but no 64-bit Intel Mac, so no cake for me. Darn. Hopefully the final release will run on all hardware that Leopard itself can run on.
