I read an article in yesterday's IAR newsletter which said that Microsoft was offering the JVM via download.
Sorry I didn't save the article or URL.
It had something to going with a very long ongoing litigation between Microsft and Sun.
Microsoft determined that rather than create more litigation it was safer to offer a download.
Sun however doesn't agree with the MS representation and claimed they were trying to corner the internet market.
PERSONALLY I'm for anything that eliminates JAVA :-)

I'm not sure on this but doesn't Microsofts .NET platform run on it's own platform independant Virtual Machine?

I have a JVM critical app running on a site and use this link for users who need to "upgrade".

And have you seen the MS VM in action? Does your app look and function the same as with Sun's implementation?
Also, thanks to everyone for the tips.

Thanks for the link. I read a similar report on Wired the other day. That article as well used the phrase 'Windows XP does not support Java.' While it goes on to say that you can download the Microsoft JVM. Also, do I understand correctly from the article that because of the MS agreement with Sun that the MS JVM is an older implementation of the JVM? Will Sun's JVM still integrate with IE6 in XP?
