Games on

I was wondering if anyone else has this issue. When I try to play a web-based game from (Like BeSpelled) it just says that it's loading the game, and it never loads. It works fine in Windows. I have tried it in Opera 7.xx, Mozilla, Firefox, Netscape and they all do the same thing. I have Slack 9.1. I can play games on fine. I don't get any errors or anything. I have Flash and Java installed, and both seem to work fine since I don't get any errors about it.

For example, go to the following link and click "play now":

Nevermind, I think I just found the answer, I just read on there that it needs ActiveX controls. I know this is a Microsoft thing, but is there any way to have that in Linux so that some websites like this one can work?

No. It was written using microsoft's broken java implementation. Remember the lawsuits?
It also says that it doesn't work with Sun java, or any strict implementation including Blackdown.
