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.

That's hopeful at least. I hope that that indicates that Apple will work with Oracle to get a decent set of native (ish) widgets on any future OS X Java implementation

Life without Netbeans for PHP on my MBP just isn't worth thinking about. ;)

If, and it's a big IF, if Lion ships with no JRE and IF there is no viable alternative, I'll have to consider switch to Linux. VM at first, until it's time to replace the hardware. I'd rather not though, truth be told (nothing against Linux, but I just really like OS X)
