      Description

      All JavaFX sample applets start even on currently unsupported platforms which may cause a lot of trouble (e.g: http://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-2544). Since applets are embedded in webpages and webpages should never cause browsers to crash.

      proposed fix:
      -use deployment toolkit to detect platform + jre
      -display a fancy branded banner which tells the user that this particular applet is not supported on his platform
      -don't crash if possible ;)

      possible difficulties:
      deployment toolkit only fully implemented on windows but the currently available crossplatform features should be sufficient for this task
