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.

on topic...

I used to be a huge fan of Java, but over the years, I have lost considerable interest.

For Web dev, PHP and JS seem to fit the bill for most things and for native apps, if you write them in a MVC style, then Objective-C / C# / C++ or whatever does a fast and "more" native job, plus they are easy to install and maintain.

I love the Java language though, that is something I will miss as it slides into a deep deep sleep...
