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.

Swing applications look out of place on the Mac only if the developer didn't take the time to make it look native. With little effort, you can get as native as you'd like. See this application for example: http://www.solutionapp.net

If you look at the release note, they added a pretty sizable number of new features and hooks into native OS X mechanisms. I don't think they would have put that much work if they were going to just scrap it -- I think they will probably give the code base for Oracle to maintain.
