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.

openJDK vs. Oracle Java

Unfortunately, I don't think openJDK is a solution for many people who are forced to use a JRE for banking or government applications, as some of you mentioned. I recently had to run a Java program for work that did not behave correctly on Ubuntu + openJDK, but worked perfectly on openSUSE + Oracle Java. I wish it wasn't this way, but it looks like the Oracle edition is the Real McCoy.

That's really odd.
Open JDK 6 is mostly oracle JDK, with a few replacements for stuff sun/oracle doesn't ahve a licence to distribute source.

Open JDK 7 is oracle JDK. There will not be a difference. OpenJDK is the only Oracle approved path forward.
