Mac OS X The jokes about two evils joining up are easily made, but I'll try to refrain. Apple recently marked its Java implementation as deprecated. Well, we now know why: Apple and Oracle have announced that Apple will contribute to the OpenJDK project, effectively meaning that Java for Mac OS X will be developed by the OpenJDK community. Why do I have this image in my head?

Java is crucial for Apple but mostly for their servers, the entire webshop infrastructure runs on top of java, but it definitely makes sense. Apple has never really done a good job with java, it really showed that they do not have enough resources to maintain it.
So it is really better that Oracle now is at the helm.
