My shiney new Acer Aspire One netbook (XP, Atom 1.6ghz, 1/2gb, Intel 945 Xpress GPU, £150 from Asda!) doesn't like it much at all - 128 balls (image) gets a meager 5fps.
128 balls (2D) doesn't even register on the scale - a lot less than 1fps
Ofcourse, I didn't expect it to be performant - I suppose atleast it ran ;-)
I was running on battery at the time though.
I just tried revisiting the page while operating on mains, only to find no application on the page.
I did a refresh, and was met with this dialog:
"Java is required to run JavaFX applications.
You will now be redirected to a Java update site to get the latest version"
It auto-downloaded the installer, but gave me this message:
"This software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall it?"
I refused, causing it to display this dialog:
"The current version of Java on this system (0 - Java Not Enabled) does not support JavaFX.
You will now be redirected to a Java update site to get the latest version."
It again began to auto-download the installer!!!
As I didn't have the patience to explore such an infinite loop, I cancelled it. Strangely I was then greeted with a 100% operational app. :S
Given that i'm running a totally clean system (the only java related installation i've made is the latest jdk release), it seems very odd that such a malfunction should occur.
Arg it isn't a one-off either, every time I now visit the page i'm greeted with the same broken sequence of dialogs.
I believe the latest jdk version ( build 1.6.0_11-b03 ) simply doesn't work properly unless you also independently install the jre...... and even then it doesn't work without first doing a page refresh?!
I also get 2 Java icons appearing in the system tray!
