    Hello all,

    I have a intel based dual core 2.8 iMac. I was trying to find out if I could install the java 6.0 or some people call it java 1.6?

    Any hints or clues are appreciated

    Yes it's compatible and is pre-installed in OS X v10.5.6 (the latest version) so if you just update via Software Update you're good.

    From the Apple site:

    "Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 2 delivers improved reliability and compatibility for Java SE 6, J2SE 5.0 and J2SE 1.4.2 on Mac OS X 10.5.4 and later. The release updates Java SE 6 to version 1.6.0_07, J2SE 5.0 to version 1.5.0_16, and J2SE 1.4.2 to 1.4.2_18. The update is available through Software Update and the Apple Support website."
