I think it's a good thing MS removed it. Nowadays about 3 out of 4 new PC's get pre-installed with a recent JVM so there's no real need anymore for an oudated, non compatible VM (MS aren't even allowed to call it a JVM), imho.
A little icon in the systray can't really bother me that much although I also think they shouldn't have done it. And sure, there is a 'javaw.exe' running in the background if there's an applet on screen, what's the problem with that? The MSVM is running in the background too, isn't it?

Thanks for the links :-)
I haven't seen Map24 earlier, but I think it's still pretty great!
