EULA-gy for Java

A developer named Yakov Fain noticed the following section in one of the Microsoft EULA's (End-User License Agreement):

"The software product may contain support for programs written in Java. Java technology is not fault tolerant and is not designed, manufactured, or intended for use or resale as on-line control equipment in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, such as in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control, direct life support machines, or weapon systems, in which the failure of Java technology could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage."

Good thing Microsoft is covering all of their legal bases...
