> More people get virii and adverts through usage of Java and Flash than any other browser-related utility, these are insecure programmes which people should avoid, so why add these risks to an OpenBSD system, compromising all the hard work done to secure it?

I hate when websites use Java, too (I disabled it). But Java is much more than the annoying Java applets ! Many great applications are written in Java (e.g. Eclipse) so, depending on your needs, a Java runtime environment is not always an option.

It is not a problem anyway as Java runs on OpenBSD.
