Do I need to keep all the Java updates?

My WinXP computer shows all this:

Control Panel
Add or Remove Programs
Currently installed programs:
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 2
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 3
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 4
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10

Each one is a separately installed program from the Windows point of
view. Should I keep them all? I would like to leave only the highest
numbered update and remove the rest.

TIA,

-Ramon F Herrera

What you could do is to remove *all* of them, and then to download and
install JSE Runtime Environment 6.0.

Unless you have a specific need (like for testing) to be
able to use a specific update, then the last one should be fine.

Note that Java 5 update 11 and Java 6 are both available.

http://www.java.com/getjava/ offers 5.0 update 11, but
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp offers 6.0. Does this mean
that 6.0 is in a new category of gamma release that is offered to some but
not to others?

So why does http://www.java.com/getjava/ still offer 5.0 update 11?
