Vista's glass won't hold Java

If you have sufficient hardware, Vista will render the UI using a feature that Microsoft referrs to as "glass" where portions of the windows are semi-transparent.

Microsoft Watch is reporting that if you use applications that fire up the Java VM it turns glass off, system-wide, until you shut down the app.

This is true if you use the released version of Java. The solution is to run the Java 6 beta 2 which you can get here: http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/ea.jsp
