If you're running Windows Vista RC1 and you notice that the nice Glassy Aero UI keeps switching into "Basic Mode" every time you visit a website with some Java on the page, you should upgrade to the Beta of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Beta 2 (second link on the page) as it supports staying in Aero mode while running Java Applets.

JRE 1.5.0_08 also works fine, in my limited testing.
