RE: remember Java...

Member since:

Java is a bit different since it's up to the vendor (Apple) to port Java to OS X. Ruby on the other hand has work well on OS X for quite some time before Apple was even interested in it, and like other OSS software is available through MacPorts.

Java may be available in a similar manner in the future now that Sun has relaxed the distribution restrictions (which were brutal in the past, at least when compared with OSS software).
