I just downloaded the OpenJDK: http://openjdk.java.net/ for Mac --  
named SoyLatte
   http://landonf.bikemonkey.org/static/soylatte/
.. and it works like a charm!

This is really nifty: in the past, Mac users had to wait for ages for  
Apple to catch up, mainly due to window manager / swing porting.  Now  
we have a java that is latest and greatest using Apple's X11.  It also  
allows you to start trying 64-bit versions on the Mac.

I suspect various Linux users will also like this, they likely have  
similar problems with the old releases.

Cool!
