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.

I should be the one to decide whether or not that matters to me.
Also, no one uses Swing any more, unless they're using Clojure.
Most people use the native toolkit for any given platform.
I'm no fan of the JRE's memory usage, nor of the Java language (though the bytecode spec is actually a reasonable Forth), but saying "well, it doesn't matter if they don't let you use it, because it sucks anyway" doesn't change the fact that this is anti-choice.
