Statistic on % business workstations with Java turned off

Hi Experts,

Not sure if this question should be asked here or in Web.

I'm considering using Remote Scripting on IIS/IE6 to perform such critical, but very temporary, analysis of user behavior on a couple of web pages that are abandoned by users. The market is predominantly US business workstations: RS requires an applet to run on the webpage; does anyone have any stats on the % of US business machines with Java turned off.

Is there a way to tell if Java is turned off in Javascript?

There is the navigator.javaenabled method that will allow you to test for this. It returns a Boolean value, so testing for it would use:

if ( navigator.javaenabled() )
// java is on
I read recently that this is reported incorrectly on Netscape 6.1 for Macintosh OS 9, always returning false. Seemingly it was fixed in Netscape 6.2 for Macintosh OS 9, but it is broken again in Netscape 7 PR 1 on OS 10.2 and Mozilla 1.1 on OS 10.2.
