Java Web Start Sucks Eggs

I've written about this before, and after all it is fairly (no, very) esoteric. Java Web Start is Java's approach to installation and distribution and updating of Java desktop applications.

It's a really nice idea but it just is too full of problems. With a small project like BlogBridge, I guess it saves us some work, and so we use it, warts and all. Anyway, here is a bit that I found that articulates in great gory detail all the problems. I concur and I suffer with you.
