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.

Maybe it isn't an evil plot to further restrict OS X users' freedom on the platform.
Maybe, just maybe, only a minor percentage of Mac users actually care about Java.

I'm just saying that Java has such a small presence on the desktop that it's absence doesn't really mean much.

I reinstalled Windows about a month ago when I replaced my disk, and I only just now realized that I didn't install Java.
