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.

Netbeans
Eclipse
Limewire
OpenOffice (uses JDBC)
Squirrel SQL Editor
JEdit
PGAdmin3 - Postgresql admin tool

And many more. People like to take shots at Java (just like they do at everything else), but you can create some nice tools.

One thing that truly rocks in Java is JDBC. It is so simple to connect to Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, etc. Drivers are just jars that go with the app, so deployment is just drag-n-drop. No client libraries needed.
