Mac OS X After the news that the new MacBook Airs do not ship with Flash pre-installed (which is news considering Flash has been part of Mac OS X for a very long time), we now have news that Apple is also taking what appears to be the first steps towards removing Apple's own Java runtime from Mac OS X.

Java integration in MacOS X is 1000 times better than running a Windows application under wine. And running Windows application under wine is the only alternative to Java. Just face it, if a developer want to write an application just once, it will run on Windows natively and on Mac OS X under wine.
There is QT but QT requires compilation and most developers won't even bother to compile their app on MacOS X.
