Oops, sorry, Mac users can't use it.

I thought Mac users would be able to use the excite voice chat because it's a Java-based program. I see now the system requirements indicate only Windows machines. So much for Java's 'universal portability'. I guess I shouldn't have believed all of Sun's Java hype and propaganda.

Hang on, before you start dissing Java -- I work with Java and it is portable. Excite must have put something in there that made it Windows only. Microsoft probably paid them off!
