It's pretty much the other way round: java CANNOT be included by default 
in any (free) linux distro for license reasons, and it CANNOT be 
included by default in Windows as a consequence of court ruling: 
Microsoft is actually _not allowed_ to include Java.

The only system (apart from solaris, I guess) that has a JVM by default 
is OSX, and it's _NOT_ sun's one, but the internally developed one.
