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.

If this was done in protest to Oracle's patent troll-ish ways, I fully support this. The moment I read about how the Oracle lawyers lit up when they found out about Google's Dalvik, my respect for them has dropped sub-zero.

This has NOTHING to do with that. MacOS' Java was maintained by Apple.
And Apple would definitely be on the side of Oracle, considering that they aren't actually against software patents and going after Android themselves.
