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 really don't understand

I am so confused, isn't webObject (one of Apple enterprise oriented product ) a J2EE server. And what about the scientific community (a good share of them use apple computer and most of the tools are written in java because of the runtime portability).

But anyway, seems like the iPhone and iOS restriction on 3rd party runtime was a gentle kick in the ball while Apple was preparing the sledgehammer. First they took care of flash then java.

And of course, as usual most of the mac user don't care, I surely hope for them that Oracle would move to provide them with a JRE/JDK.

One another point of view (maybe I should split my post here), Oracle have probably not renewed Apple's right to develop its own JRE (which is mightily plausible) and decided to make apple pay more or this right. But this is very hypothetical and nothing would back this theory. So for all apple haters : "go for it !"
