crabel (1862874) writes "In Java 1.6.0_21 the company field was changed from "Sun Microsystems, Inc" to "Oracle".

Apparently not the best idea since some applications depend on that field to identify the virtual machine.
All eclipse versions since 3.3 (released 2007) until and including the recent Helios release (2010) have been reported to crash with an OutOfMemoryError due to this change.

Good job!
